We are looking to recruit new members for the Community Shares Booster Fund assessment process. Think this could be for you? Read on...
Community shares are a popular approach to raising finance in which local people and organisations invest and become co-owners of vital local enterprises – from pools to pubs, community housing to heritage buildings. It is a form of investment unique to co-operative and community benefit societies and is contributing to their growth across the UK.
The Booster Fund has helped to catalyse and grow the community shares market and provides:
- Business development support and advice to new share offers
- Development grants to cover some of the costs of preparing a share offer
- Matched equity investment
The fund originally started out as a pilot programme but has since grown in size and scope. To date we have invested more than £3m in over 50 enterprises and helped them leverage in a further £9m in community investment.
We are looking to recruit up to two new members to our Booster Fund investment process. This will either be as an assessor or a voting panel member.
We want to develop the diversity of thought and experience of our investment panel and processes. We also are interested in people who bring lived experience of the communities, services and businesses that we invest in.
