Sport England have launched a guide produced by Sporting Assets and Substance on how Community Assets Rights and Community Financing can be applied into Community Sport. Hopefully it can help sports clubs better understand the opportunities to enhance their asset base, financial sustainability and their social impact.

It also suggests there is great potential for community sport to take advantage of social investment and the new Community Rights.
