At Shared Assets we believe that land is a common good that should deliver shared benefits for everyone.
We provide practical advice, support and training to landowners and communities who want to manage land as a sustainable and productive asset.
We also undertake research, policy and advocacy work to help create an environment where common good models of land management can flourish.
If you would like to talk to us about how we can hep you, or if you want to find out more about what we do, then we'd love to hear from you.
We love to explore and discuss land-use topics, so don't be shy - join us online and let us know all about your ideas and issues!
