This training session is primarily for those Big Local areas who are considering community assets for the first time or at the early stages of developing their asset project to benefit their community. The session will go through the opportunities of community assets and explore the key considerations related to Community Asset Transfer from a public body and leasing/purchasing commercially. Taking on an asset can be a complex issue so the session will break things down into a step-by-step approach. 

The session will be interactive and will cover the following key areas: 

  • Why do you want to take on a community asset project? 
  • What is Community Asset Transfer? 
  • What are the other options such as purchasing/leasing a property commercially? 
  • A checklist of feasibility questions to answer before progressing 
  • The business plan 
  • What other professional help might be required? 
  • A Big Local case study 


This session will be delivered by Locality, Local Trusts lead support partner on assets and legal bodies. 

This interactive session will assist you in determining whether the proposed facility is an asset or a potential liability. There will be opportunities to ask questions, discuss your challenges and situations and learn from the experiences of other Big Local areas.
