After a hugely successful initial three years, Development Trusts Association Scotland (DTA Scotland) has been given the green light to continue to operate their Community Shares Scotland programme for a further three year period, thanks to the Scottish Government and Big Lottery Fund Scotland.
Both organisations have committed to jointly investing a total of £812,101 over the next three years which will enable the Programme to continue to support community organisations looking to utilise a community share issue to fund their enterprise activities.
