Falkirk Funders Fayre exhibitors Community Shares Scotland, alongside their partners at Cooperatives Development Scotland and the Plunkett Foundation, are delivering a free workshop, “Community Owned Shops and Pubs: Making It Easy”, on Friday 13th March.
The workshop takes place 10am – 4pm at the Norton Park Conference Centre, 57 Albion Road, Edinburgh, EH7 5QY, and aims to give groups in the early stages of community ownership the knowledge they need to get their projects moving. Speakers will cover fundraising, governance and engaging local communities.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to speak with those already running community owned businesses.
The organisers would encourage groups to send 2 representatives where possible; travel bursaries are available.
