We work with communities who want to own land or buildings in Glasgow and the Clyde Valley.
We promote community ownership and land reform, and do research on changes to improve community-led and owned development.
Connecting you to success
We are always happy to talk to existing or aspiring community owners, and work as part of a network to get you the best support.
We support communities who want to purchase privately held land, and give tips on community rights to buy land and buildings. We also have funding to give additional resources to communities in our area — this is announced on our social media feed and the News section of this website.
Promoting Community Ownership
We also work strategically to change the conditions for all community owners. Part of this is connection: bridging the gap between community groups, resources and agencies to deliver projects. It also includes raising the profile of community ownership, and research and policy making to support community ownership and land reform creating a fairer and wealthier Scotland.
Ownership of land and buildings is a great way for communities to take control of problems in their local area. But the process of ownership can seem daunting for communities, and the benefits unclear to existing owners. That’s why we’re here – to help everyone better understand what community ownership is, how it works, and how to get involved.
