About Community Benefit Societies 

Community Benefit Societies are a great way to deliver community-led asset projects. We have chosen this as the main legal structure for Resonance Community Developers to invest into, as it offers the following benefits:

- Enables community shares to be issued
- Income and assets are locked into the Communty Benefit Society so profits can be recycled by the community
- Multiple projects can be delivered through the Community Benefit Society so legal structures are not replicated to deliver additional projects
- Resonance Community Developers can work with communities for the long-term investing in different types of projects as needs change
