Morven Lyon is the Programme Manager for Community Shares Scotland which is funded by the Scottish Government and National Lottery Community Fund to promote the use of community shares.

    The CSS team can provide free, in-depth support and guidance to any Scottish group at any stage of their community shares journey. As part of the Development Trusts Association Scotland (DTAS), they are also a sponsoring body and have 2 sets of model rules available for Community Benefit Societies.

    Some examples of community share offers I have worked on:

    • Raasay Community Renewables (Energy)
    • Common Ground Against Homelessness (Housing)
    • Loch Ness Hub (Tourism)
    • Cockburnspath Community Shop
    • Isle of Eigg Brewery
