Our new report, In Community Hands, reveals the scale of community asset transfer across the country and shines a light on best practice from local authorities and community organisations.

In partnership with Co-op, this report reveals that on average 350 buildings and spaces are being transferred to community ownership each year. However this compares to the 4,000 each year we know are being lost to private ownership.

The research also shines a light on the pioneering local authorities who have been supporting communities to take on ownership of much loved buildings and spaces. It demonstrates the tangible benefits community-run and locally-rooted projects bring to local places – which at Locality we see every day.
