Are you an existing community business in England? Looking for help with your community share offer?
The Booster Fund provides support to get your share offer ready. We (Co-operatives UK) can also invest in your share offer by matching investments from your community!
Community shares are a great way for communities to pull together and take ownership of local buildings and land, or to develop new projects or services that benefit people in their community.
This guidance will help you decide whether the Booster Fund is right for your community business and your project.
Who is behind the Booster Fund?
The Booster Fund is delivered in partnership by Co-operatives UK, Locality, Plunkett Foundation, and Co-operative and Community Finance.
It is funded by Power to Change and the Architectural Heritage Fund. The Architectural Heritage Fund is ring fenced for heritage projects that play an important role in high street revival and the economic resilience of an area.
