SLCC and the National Association of Local Councils (NALC) are co-hosting an informative online event following the recent extension of the Community Ownership Fund to include parish, town and community councils in England and Wales.
With the opening of the next bidding round (round three) and the deadline for expression of interest fast approaching (21 June 2023), the event offers a valuable opportunity for attendees to gain a comprehensive understanding of the application process. Expert speakers from the Department of Levelling Up Housing and Communities and Locality will guide attendees through the steps in framing successful applications and provide critical insights into what the fund looks for in projects. A dedicated Q&A segment will allow attendees to seek clarification and receive tailored guidance.
If your council has community ownership projects in the pipeline for sports facilities, arts and music venues, museums and galleries, parks, pubs, post offices, and shops, this event is a must-attend. SLCC and NALC have tirelessly advocated for increased access to government funding. Now is the time to ensure the sector receives its fair share to help serve local communities effectively.
Take advantage of this opportunity to unlock funding opportunities and enhance your council’s ability to deliver impactful projects. Join us and take a proactive step towards securing the resources your community deserves.
