Our work in partnership with the local authority to guide communities through the process of taking on, developing and managing buildings has been held up as an example to be replicated across the whole country in a national paper given to the CLG (Communities and Local Government) Select Committee earlier this week.
NAVCA (National Association for Voluntary and Community Action) gave evidence to the CLG Select Committee which is running an inquiry into Community Rights. In it, NAVCA highlighted our work, particularly through our asset development toolkit, to support the case that community groups and charities need support not only to get a community asset but to run one as well.
It feels great for this work to be recognised as such a good example. Let’s hope that recent successes that Caroline has been involved in (Lye Community Centre, Lye and Wollescote Chapels and Stafford Street Day Centre) can continue!
