Register of Community Assets

20th November 2018

Sheffield Hallam University are working with others to compile a register of community assets in the country – this could be land or buildings. They are asking community groups who either own or manage an asset to provide them with basic details about it.

The information will be available on mySociety’s ‘Keep it in the Community’ open access database of community assets in England; the benefits of this will be:

  • ensuring that funders can reach you with relevant funding and support opportunities.
  • helping you to connect with other community assets more easily.
  • helping organisations supporting community assets to promote themselves and influence policy.
  • minimising the need for repetitive requests about the assets that you manage.

In return for registering your assets you will be entered into a prize draw to win one of two £100 gift vouchers. The prize draw will be open until Friday 14th December 2018.

If you change your mind in future, your assets can be removed from this database by contacting mySociety.
