The wealth of third sector organisations and continuing sense of community in Wales provides a strong platform to develop local community based partnerships. These offer a number of benefits including:-
- Extended economic benefits for the local area
- A direct stake in a local project
- Attractive financial return to members
We passionately believe that this offers potential to deliver much needed infrastructure and to change culture from a dependency on public grants to more social entrepreneurial.
Community renewable energy – see hydropower
Education – Need to improve school buildings but no funds available from the local education authority – why not establish a social enterprise to deliver?The social enterprise manages and delivers the project e.g. new classroom and rents it to the local council under a long-term contract. This provides a guaranteed income stream, offers a good investment opportunity to the local community and overcomes the lack of public capital funding. For further information please contact us.
