Group Support

We are here to support community groups working in our District. Whether you are just at the idea stage and are considering setting up a community group or you are a larger, established group or charity looking for advice on running your organisation we are here to help. If it’s a quick query we can usually help you on the spot, or signpost you to someone who can. St Albans City and District Council fund us to help new groups start up, so this is free.

If you’re not already a member, take a look at the benefits of Membership.
