Getting Started

Supporting Local Residents

Our recommendation is that every volunteer is supported to help residents attending their Community space by undertaking the basic online training links below:

  • Suicide Prevention Training - a range of short free online training to understand the simple ways to support people experiencing suicidal tendencies

  • Stop Suicide - Taster talks to provide you with an overview of how to identify a person at risk of suicide and equip you to support that individual to stay safe

  • Safeguarding Training - a range of 20-minute briefings (presentations with audio) covering a number of locally identified safeguarding issues and what actions to take

  • Money Helper - a government-approved online advice service.


If you are able to gather any photos of your Community Space in action, for wider promotion, then please do let us know (please make sure you get photo consent beforehand). Please send any photos to

Community Chest Fund

If you are needing financial support, you can submit an application to the HDC Community Chest Grant Fund for up to £500 to support your Community space.
