Debbie Lamb will run a 2-hour workshop exploring what Community Asset Transfers are, the benefits and drawbacks of negotiating with statutory bodies to secure unused premises or green space for community use.
This is subject that crops up regularly in MVDA's work, so we are very pleased to have secured a very experienced speaker on the subject, Debbie Lamb. you can read about Locality's work here.
For a long time, central government has been trying to encourage statutory bodies to enable Voluntary and Community Sector Organisations to take over the running of unused or underused assets for the benefit of the community. There have been some good success stories, and sadly some transfers that look more like the transfer of liabilities.
This 2-hour session will provide lots of very helpful information, and there will be time to answer your questions towards the end of the session.
Book you place to receive a link to join the session on Zoom.
If you would like to cancel, please contact us before 24 January 2023 - 4:00pm.
