Community Shares Conference

Brighton & Hove Social Enterprise Network is organising a Community Shares conference on  Thursday, 7 April 2016, 10 am. to 4 pm at the Brighthelm Community Centre, North Road, Brighton, BN1 1YD. It is free.

Community Shares offer opportunities for communities to raise finance for capital projects that would not be possible from grants.

Community Shares can help communities:

  • buy pubs, shops or community buildings
  • transfer assets from Local Authorities
  • raise finance for renewable energy schemes

This conference offers an opportunity to hear from influential speakers in the community shares world who have found solutions for people supporting their communities and meet people who have been through the process. They will de-mystify the community shares process and answer your questions and concerns. You’ll also learn more about the co-operative option and be able to network with fellow co-operators.
