#CATJRF: What the sector is looking for is support around the skills needed to move forward on Asset Transfer…

There are plenty of good examples of asset transfer to community and voluntary organisations right across the region but what the sector now needs is adequate support and advice around the skills required to move this forward. 

Within the right policy and legislative framework and with the right skills set and access to social finance, the sector can take the necessary steps to implement more sustainable projects and successful social enterprises. 

Opening up the debate on asset transfer is critical and tomorrow’s seminar will therefore be an important part of the ongoing conversations required to enable both government and the sector to make the changes that are needed. 

I will be there as part of the Queen’s reseach team to observe those conversations and will report back here on Friday as to what is said.
