What are the benefits of sharing school facilities with the community?

Schools are by design, strategically located in the centre of our communities.
Here are just some of the benefits that come with sharing Space with your local community.

How does SpacetoCo fit in?

SpacetoCo is a website that allows you to share and book space by the hour.
We connect people with spaces, to people who need spaces.

SpacetoCo comes with the following benefits

Live Availability

Throw that paper calendar out, and share your availability live with the public. No more phone calls and questions about times your Space is open. As soon as you accept a booking, we block out the availability so no-one else can book over the top.

Trust goes both ways. Review your Guests profile each time they make a booking, and leave them a public review after.

Education. It’s at the core of our vision for SpacetoCo.

Our society stands to benefit from greater collaboration, sharing of resources and connectedness.

State Governments encourage the use of School facilities with their community.

Each Australian State and Territory has a policy governing community use of school facilities and resources. The Western Australian Department of Education Policy Statement can be viewed at this link. Here’s an expert from the document:

School facilities and resources must be made available for use by the community, TAFEWA colleges and any other potential users.
Principals must not permit activities which are inconsistent with the educational aims of the school or which interfere with its operations.

Applications for use of school facilities and resources must be approved by the principal and formalised through a written agreement signed by the school principal and a representative of the user group.
Principals will consult with School Councils to establish the schedule of fees or charges to be applied for the hire or use of school facilities and resources.

Still have questions?

We’ve got you covered with some useful information below.

We’ve made it really, really simple. Just Sign Up here, and add your Space moments later.

In preparation for listing your Space, we’ve put together a helpful article on what you need to consider for your SpacetoCo listing.

You will need to task someone with the job of managing your Space(s). This person will be your ‘SpacetoCo Host’, and will be responsible for responding to booking requests, SpacetoCo messages and scheduling the Space for use.

Whilst so much of the booking process is automated, community members using your Space(s) will need a consistent point of contact. Upskilling more than one person is advisable.
