A Community Shares scheme is one way of:

  • saving and/or transforming local community facilities;
  • raising money to finance a project;
  • funding new sports clubs;
  • financing renewable energy developments.

Community shares schemes are democratically run and give control to the community of investors, who could be your local geographical or sporting community. Anyone can choose to invest and each investor has a say in the management of the scheme, no matter how large or small their investment. Because of this a Community Shares scheme is a great way of funding projects with a specific community in mind.

 Community Shares schemes can:

  • provide unrestricted funding to help cover core running costs or capital requirements;
  • develop an engaged supporter base;
  • open up new income streams;
  • help your group become more sustainable.

 We also hope to have a speaker from a local group who have successfully used a Community Shares Scheme.
