The Community Ownership Fund supports community groups across the UK to take ownership of assets which are at risk of being lost to the community.

This applies to buildings such as community centres, parks, pubs and post office buildings.

Round 4 is the final round of the Community Ownership Fund and there is one bidding window remaining to allocate funding.

Who can apply?

Check the official guidance for full eligibility criteria. You will likely be eligible if your organisation:

  • is an incorporated voluntary and community organisation or a parish, town and community council.
  • is able to buy the asset freehold, or the long-term leasehold of at least 15 years with reasonable break clauses.
  • is the same organisation that will receive the funding and run the project.

Key dates to note:

  • Round 4 Window 1 25 March 2024 to 10 April 2024
  • Round 4 Window 2 will open in late May
    Specific timings for the final window will be published soon.
