About this event

In this interactive workshop we want to explore the highs and lows of community asset ownership and whether small and BAME-led groups are still interested in owning assets.

We will be joined by Karen Cheney from Birmingham City Council to outline current asset transfer practice in Birmingham as well as organisations that own assets to provide an insight in to asset ownership.

This event is open to all Birmingham community organisations.
