Community shares are a way to raise money by offering your community a chance to own shares in your organisation.
Community shares are usually about more than just profit - they work best for people who want to get involved and support a cause or a project they really care about, often because it has a positive social impact for the community it serves.
Is there a project in your area – perhaps a pub, the local shop, a housing project, even a wind turbine – that could benefit your community, but needs money to become a reality?
This is where community shares can help. The community can unite to buy shares, and enable the project to become sustainable.
Community shares don’t have to be large investments, shares can start at £50 or even lower, and people can come together to make an investment.
