This fund helps community groups buy or renovate assets that would otherwise be lost to the community.

Assets are venues and meeting spaces used by the local community, such as:

  • community centres
  • cinemas and theatres
  • galleries
  • museums
  • music venues
  • parks
  • post office buildings
  • pubs
  • shops
  • sporting and leisure facilities

Assets can be at risk of being lost to the community from:

  • closure or end of lease
  • neglect or dereliction
  • an unsustainable current business model
  • being for sale
  • being listed for disposal
  • being part of a community asset transfer

The asset must offer value to local people. You must be able to run it sustainably for the long term.
