BBRC will facilitate investment into in community enterprises to sustain their future and enhance the offer to the communities that they serve.
Bristol has over 1,500 voluntary and social economy organisations as well as over 250 community buildings that are run by local communities and provide both services and facilities for those local communities. (Source: Bristol City Council)
Community ownership of assets such as town halls, sports facilities, affordable housing and libraries builds local infrastructure which empowers communities and increases cohesion and local resilience as local people are often best placed to manage community facilities in their area. They already make extensive use of these assets and their local knowledge and hands-on management often results in lower overheads and better value-for-money. Community organisations also use volunteers and take great pride in their local area. (Source: Locality)
