Community engagement and involvement - perhaps and AGM  - CVCLT

As part of the Community Ownership Fund application criteria, groups need to be able to raise match funding, but it can be tricky to navigate what counts as match funding and what the best options are for your project.

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.

As well as the resources and advice service which you can access on My Community, there are a series of webinars, delivered by the community ownership fund support programme partners, that will look at match funding in detail and how to write a strong application (putting together your management case).

Who is this for?

  • Those looking to put in an EOI or application for the community ownership fund
