Having Hallmark accreditation demonstrates that a Hall’s management committee is managing its charity well.
That’s important to the individual trustees, the community as a whole and is especially poignant when it comes to potential funding.
Hallmark promotes the good management of village halls through a quality standards scheme which is supported by a system of peer visits. The main benefits of the scheme are:
- It gives Village Hall volunteers confidence that they are running their Hall in the correct manner.
- It provides funders and other organisations interested in Village Halls with a benchmark for well managed community facilities.
- It is widely acknowledged by the Charity Commission and
- It can lead to reduced insurance premiums.
Any committees interested in moving towards accreditation should contact Lisa Chambers at Cambridgeshire ACRE.

There are three levels to the Scheme, undertaken in sequence:
Hallmark One checks charitable administration and management.
Hallmark Two checks health and safety, security and licences.
Hallmark Three checks community involvement, social awareness and forward planning.
