Locality, the UK’s leading network for community-led organisations, is holding a national conference on community asset transfer in Hebden Bridge, Yorkshire on Friday 6th July 2012.
The event is for anybody passionate about transforming and regenerating their communities by taking over the ownership of local land and buildings. If you are already part of or are interested in being involved in managing a local community asset, work for a voluntary or social enterprise organisation or work for local authority, then the event is for you.
A range of key speakers on the subject of managing community assets will feature at the event – including Ed Mayo from Co-Operatives UK and Steve Wyler from Locality. Delegates will also get the chance to hear from people who are already successfully managing spaces in their local community, discovering the policy, practise and people involved in transforming community assets first hand.
Places cost £95 if you’re from a community group/organisation or social enterprise or £125 for anyone from local authority, the private sector or making an individual booking. Anyone booking by 30th April 2012 will get a 20% discount on these rates.
