Community Asset Transfer Programme – South Tyneside Council
Posted on 3rd July, 2017
South Tyneside Council is the midst of a major programme of community asset transfer which is empowering communities and charity groups to take over the running of local public assets.
Local authorities across the country have faced difficult decisions and have been challenged to find effective and efficient solutions to the continued delivery of valued local services. Proactively embracing the values and models of a Cooperative Council, South Tyneside has taken steps to prioritise community partnership initiatives and cooperative models of working, including developing a new Cabinet Portfolio for the Voluntary Sector, Partnerships, and Cooperatives.
