Community Ownership Fund in Scotland – Webinars and Support

Comhairle nan Eilean Siar is encouraging individuals looking to apply to the Community Ownership Fund to make use of available online support.

The Community Ownership Fund helps communities across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland to take ownership of assets at risk of closure.

Development Trust Scotland is hosting a webinar on how to write a Strong Community Ownership Fund Application on 5 December from 10am – 2pm.

Applicants can also access the support programme advice service through the enquiry form on the My Community website. Also available on the website are guides and resources including FAQs, an editable version of the application form and more general information about business planning and asset management. There are also recordings on the website offering specific advice for sporting assets, heritage assets, pubs, shops and cafes.
