Regular Hirer scheme

The Regular Hirer scheme is available to groups which:

  • are run on a charitable, voluntary or non-profit basis, or by a self-employed tutor
  • will use Citizens House for at least once a month, for at least 8 months of the year. It’s preferable for your minimum hire to be 10 months/40 weeks, and it’s a huge help if we have your dates & holidays in advance.

If you were a paid-up Member of Citizens House when we closed for the rebuilding your Membership is valid until April 2020 and you have all the benefits of being in the Regular Hirer scheme.  If your group returns to the new Citizens House we’ll invite you to join the new scheme around March/April 2020.
