Considering Asset Transfer?

February 8, 2014

Can Do Communities are assisting charitable groups or organisations around the country to explore the potential of Asset Transfer, we assist in finding funding to build their capacity and to check whether the project is viable. Asset Transfer is the transfer of the management or ownership of Council owned land or buildings to a charitable group on a freehold or leasehold basis for less than market value.This shift in ownership of land and buildings from public bodies to communities is Localism in action, giving greater powers to:

  • community and voluntary sector organisations
  • individuals looking to form a not-for-private-profit group to benefit their neighbourhood

We support charitable groups by assisting them with Business Plans, Building Surveys, Legal Advice, Benchmarking  Visits, Governance & Building Management Training, Community Consultation, Organisational Health Checks and Finance Training.

Can Do Communities are currently working with Community Groups and Councils in the exploration of Asset Transfer in the following areas; Bury St Edmunds, Manchester, Peterborough, Sunderland, Wigan, Haverhill and Grays. This programme is available to any charitable group wherever you are in the country, so if you would like to find out how we can assist you please call Marvin Symes ( Co Founder- CDC) on 01733 200906 or 07910 276193)
