The government is providing funding over four years (ending in March 2025) to support community groups to take ownership of assets and amenities at risk of being lost. Examples include community centres, parks, pubs and post office buildings.

Eligible community projects should do at least one of these five things:

• Increase feelings of pride in, and improve perceptions of, the local area as a place to live.
• Improve social trust, cohesion, and sense of belonging.
• Increase local participation in community life, arts, culture, or sport.
• Improve local economic outcomes – including creating jobs, volunteering opportunities, and improving employability and skills levels in the local community.
• Improve social and wellbeing outcomes – including having a positive impact on physical and mental health of local people, and reducing loneliness and social isolation.

Based on feedback, some changes have been made to this bidding round. Read the eligibility guidelines in full.
