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.
We feed learning from this and all our other work into advocacy, campaigning, and new innovations like Land Explorer.

In the midst of a changing Britain, we explain why we need more enterprises using land productively and sustainably, to create better, more resilient land-based economies.
We recently submitted a response to Defra’s inquiry into workforce shortages in agriculture. We argued that land-based social enterprises can play a role in training the next generation of land workers. You can read our response below, or download a pdf here.
Our Director Mark Walton supports the recent Environment Committee’s call for a greater Government commitment to forestry, and points to the Making Local Woods Work programme as a demonstration of how woods can work for everyone.
