BAVO: Brid­gend As­so­ci­a­tion of Vol­un­tary Or­gan­i­sa­tions (BAVO) and Wales Co-op­er­a­tive So­ci­ety have or­gan­ised a free in­for­ma­tion ses­sion on Wed­nes­day, De­cem­ber 12 from 5.30pm-7.30pm at St Brides Mi­nor Memo­rial Hall and In­sti­tute in Bryncethin for you to find out if Com­mu­nity Shares may be what you need to take on the re­spon­si­bil­ity of run­ning your sports fa­cil­ity or com­mu­nity build­ing.

Com­mu­nity Shares schemes are one way of sav­ing and/ or trans­form­ing lo­cal com­mu­nity fa­cil­i­ties; rais­ing money to fi­nance a project; fund­ing new sports clubs and fi­nanc­ing re­new­able en­ergy de­vel­op­ments.

They can pro­vide un­re­stricted fund­ing to help cover core run­ning costs or cap­i­tal re­quire­ments. The schemes can de­velop an en­gaged sup­porter base, open up new in­come streams and help your group be­come more sus­tain­able.

The scheme is demo­crat­i­cally run and gives con­trol to the com­mu­nity of in­vestors, who could be your lo­cal geo­graph­i­cal or sport­ing com­mu­nity. Any­one can choose to in­vest and each in­vestor has a say in the man­age­ment of the scheme, no mat­ter how large or small their in­vest­ment. Be­cause of this, a Com­mu­nity Shares scheme is a great way of fund­ing projects with a spe­cific com­mu­nity in mind.

Ad­vance book­ing is nec­es­sary by call­ing BAVO on 01656 810400 or email­ing [email protected]
