1st July 2011

Published in 2011, the Practitioners’ Guide to Community Shares was the culmination of an earlier action-research programme promoting equity investment in community enterprise. Based on the experiences of ten co-operatives and community enterprises across England, the guide explains how to raise risk capital for ventures serving a community purpose. This guide has largely been updated by the new Community Shares Handbook.
