To employ a resource to negotiate with the council on community asset transfer and to implement the group’s business plan, set up a legal structure for the organisation, set up routines/procedures and investigate systems.

Four organisations with a shared vision for community asset transfer and community-run services came together to invest in their local areas.

Delivering better community services

The overriding impulse for the Leeds Community Spaces initiative is to see more efficient and community-focused services delivered from community buildings.
