We are CommunityHire, an established and experienced team of community lettings operators based across the UK. Our team is passionate about ensuring communities maximise their local assets’ value for their people’s good.

CommunityHire has grown from a start-up to an established franchise operator, managing a range of large and small local facilities. In 2020, we acquired the assets of the £14m turnover “SLS Schools”, which gave us immediate access to a massive opportunity across our group.

We have made great strides in establishing CommunityHire as a leading name in the industry, added numerous large school facilities to our client list and in 2020 we welcomed our first franchisees!


Unique concept with the only franchised model of its type in the UK

CommunityHire is the only franchised facility letting business in the UK. This concept allows us to serve communities on a local level but attain the same nationwide expansion as our online-only competitors who offer a comparatively limited service.

Little competition

The majority of our competitors offer an online-only service where they manage the bookings for facilities but do not provide any onsite management.

Highly visible and easy to grasp concept

Our simple, recognisable branding was created by an expert marketing agency and gives you a strong and professional image. The concept itself is easy to understand, and if this is your first time running your own business, then have no fear – we’ve made things as easy as possible so you can get off to the best start.

Experienced, ambitious and dynamic management team

Our Head Office Team is here to support you every step of the way. Getting started, they will provide an in-depth manual and training. They will then be available to offer guidance on everything from marketing to sales advice whenever you need it.

Easy to transition from multiple skill sets

CommunityHire’s business model is suitable for many different professional backgrounds. Those with experience in sales, the public sector, estate agency, operations management or just someone with an entrepreneurial mindset who is confident in managing different aspects of their own business will be able to make a real success of this venture.

Immediately recognisable brand and network

Our brand continues to grow across the UK. When you join CommunityHire, you are becoming part of our family of franchisees across the nation. Head Office will provide opportunities to speak and network with fellow franchisees to gain and share your experiences along the way.

Complete lead provision from day one – your territory data provided

We’ve procured a starter contact list for your territory so that you can commence your calls and introductions immediately. These leads would be impossible to buy elsewhere and would take weeks of work to build up from scratch, making them a hugely valuable asset for your business.



We enable local facilities to lease their venues to local groups and hirers, without having to do any of the hard work or organisation.


  • High achieving culture – we strive for success
  • Flexible working patterns to suit your lifestyle
  • Low operating cost, high margins
  • Challenging service-based environment
  • Highly scalable at your pace
