Stretford Public Hall
Main organisation: Friends of Stretford Public Hall
What is Stretford Public Hall?
Stretford Public Hall is a community-owned, multi-purpose building. Our aim is to create space for good things to happen in Stretford.
The hall is run by Friends of Stretford Public Hall, who have owned the building since a community asset transfer in 2015. We are a charitable Community Benefit Society which is a type of co-operative. We have over 800 members.
We provide accessible community space and deliver our own programme of events and activities, including art activities, live music nights, community cinema, and health and wellbeing activities.
What does the Stretford Hub do?
We are one of six Community Hubs operating across Trafford. We work closely with Trafford’s health and social care teams, to provide support and access to services for local Stretford residents.
Our community hub coordinator Emma works Monday to Friday and is on hand if residents need support from the hub. We are a referral point for Stretford Food Bank and we can help residents access support from Trafford Assist. We can also provide information about other services and support agencies.
