Free webinar on Community Shares and the Community Ownership Fund

The £150m Community Ownership Fund (COF) exists to help communities across the UK take ownership of assets at risk of closure. It will run until March 2025.

Co-operatives UK and the Community Shares Unit are one of the official delivery partners for the COF support programme.

Many successful Community Ownership Fund applicants have been using community shares as part of their match funding. They have also found this reliant business model a great way of evidencing strong local roots, accountability and support through the active membership system that community shares enables.
