About this event

Local authorities across the country face mounting pressures, and so councillors are increasingly looking for innovative ways to achieve their ambitions for their places.

Community Asset Transfer (CAT) can unlock financial savings and local innovation, enabling community action and supporting resident-led solutions. It can be a genuine route for devolution of control and resources to neighbourhoods, giving people a stake in shaping their local area.

Discuss and learn with your peers about how to develop successful approaches for community ownership in your communities. Hear from Locality, the national network supporting community organisations, and Power to Change, the independent trust supporting community businesses, about how to unlock the power of community ownership.
