Promotion and Equality
Information on any action taken to promote the benefits of asset transfer or any support provided for communities to engage with the Asset Transfer Request process.
CNES have provided relevant information on the website and encourage the submission of an expression of interest form following contact from a group. During this process CNES will highlight organisations that can provide assistance with the process. CNES offer guidance to groups through community regeneration officers. CNES work closing alongside the Community Ownership Support Service and Highlands and Islands Enterprise to ensure groups have access to the best advice and information that is available.
In particular what action has been taken to support disadvantaged communities to engage with the asset transfer process?
The Regeneration team within CNES are available to help Communities in the Asset Transfer Process at any stage. Many successful community purchases will require funding to achieve their aims and objectives. This will invariably require complex structured funding applications which Regeneration Officers will provide assistance with.
