Run public services and adult education courses in local places

Many public services are under threat with, for example, the closure of much needed locally based GP surgeries and libraries. The nearest alternative provision, can for many people, be out of reach. Community hubs can provide the location and administration needed to keep services local. They will be located in the community, with a citizen’s desk offering advice on worker and consumer rights, guidance on trade union organisation and activity and advice on community action on the environment and climate change.

A community hub can also be the place where existing and new adult education providers offer their services, giving people access to training and personal development without the need to travel long distances.

Where it is appropriate, the People’s Bank could run an automated satellite branch from the hub, to bring a vital service to small towns and villages.
