Community Shares Unit launches new-look website with added features

2nd Apr 2014

The Community Shares Unit has today launched its new-look website with a host of new features to support those interested or involved in community shares.

As well as a cleaner and fresher design, the website offers a number of additional resources and functions designed to assist those enterprises, supporters and advisers involved in community shares. The new features include:

  • An interactive map, enabling users to search and find out about any enterprise planning, running or which has completed a share offer
  • A fully-searchable Community Shares Handbook in which users can explore the whole of the online guide by keyword or navigate through the various chapters
  • A series of new case studies showcasing the acheivements of enterprises raising investment across a range of sectors

The handbook is now available to anyone visiting the site but we would still encourage practitioners to register to receive alerts when the handbook is updated and to comment on the text. 

We will also be releasing a batch of new videos on the website soon, including an animation explaining the mechanics of comunity shares in a clear and colourful way. 

As always, we would be thrilled to receive your feedback on the new-look website so please get in touch.
