Hello all, I am new to the forum I have my eye on a unused council library in Liverpool with a view to potential convert it into a fitness centre offering affordable fitness and free community classes can anyone give me any pointers. We are already in existence through the start up scheme through the nea government scheme but are looking to expand in the very near future. Any pointers would be much appreciated.
There’s no one way to go about this. Much will depend on the attitude of the local authority and you shouldn’t underestimate the time commitment involved. But there are lots of successful community-led asset projects to learn from, and at the heart of all of them is a broad base of local support, a viable business plan and a competent organisation to take the initiative forward.
