Lifted from DTAS’ July newsletter, this is relevant to Scottish Communities CAN members and like-minded communities:
COMMUNITY SHARES FEVER!
Our Community Shares Scotland programme has had a busy few months hosting events, running training and speaking at events throughout Scotland. This activity has stimulated an exciting level of interest in the use of this innovative form of social finance. Encouragingly, we are now seeing interest from urban and small town communities in addition to the existing interest from rural communities. While the initial community shares offers were for renewable energy projects, we are now seeing community shares being considered for a wide range of community enterprises.
