An important tool in the analysis of discrete groups of finite virtual cohomological dimension is the existence of a finite dimensional contractible CW-complex on which the group acts with finite stabilizers. We develop a purely algebraic analogue for profinite groups. This enables us to reveal the connection between finiteness conditions on the cohomology of the group and those on the normalizers of the finite p-subgroups.
