Part 5 of the Community Empowerment Act (Scotland) 2015 came into law in January 2017.
As the support organisation funded by the Scottish Government to support Asset Transfer, COSS (Community Ownership Support Service) have been at the forefront of supporting groups to apply for Community Asset Transfers (CATs) using these new rights, as well as supporting Relevant Authorities (RAs) to develop CAT processes that are Act compliant.
We have developed a CPD programme in Asset Transfer drawing from that experience and would now like to invite Third Sector colleagues from across Scotland to join us.
There will be no cost for this programme.
The programme is designed for participants to go through both webinars and to develop a support network amongst themselves, as well as with the COSS Advisors.
It is increasingly important that everyone who has a role in supporting communities to take on assets, whether that is through lease, management or ownership, has an understanding of the Asset Transfer process under Part 5.
We aim to run this programme at least once every year.
All webinars will take place from 10am -12:30, with a comfort break.
To book, please use the booking form below.
We are asking that a maximum of 2 colleagues from each organisation sign up for this initial programme.
Please return the booking form to Callum@dtascot.org.uk
Bookings will close on Monday 26th April.
