Community Asset Transfer Programme

DTNI would like to formally invite interested organisations to submit proposals to take part in its 'Community Asset Transfer Demonstration Programme' to test the new governments enabling framework policy proposals in support of the transfer of surplus public sector assets to organisations in the community and voluntary sectors.

The initial application process remains open until Friday 18th October. Second stage applicants will be invited for interview in late October early November. Please forward all your queries to DTNI Programme Manager Charlie Fisher. We look forward to hearing from you and good luck.
