The Building Powerful Communities Through Community Asset Transfer: A guide for councillors, was launched by Locality, the national network supporting community organisations, and Power to Change, the independent trust supporting community businesses in England.

It includes essential steps that councillors can take to make Community Asset Transfer (CAT) a success for their communities.

The guide was launched after a poll carried out by YouGov, commissioned by Locality, found that 71% of people feel they have not much or no control over the important decisions that affect their neighbourhood and local community.
