Plunkett has produced this new report as part of the Co-op funded Covid-19 support for Rural Community Businesses between April – June 2020.
Together Hopkins and Plunkett are responding to the current crisis and supporting community businesses across Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and rural Essex to recover and thrive during the Covid-19 lockdown.
A dedicated programme of support has been launched by the Plunkett Foundation with funding from the Co-op to support rural community businesses across the UK.
We have been working hard to review our membership strategy and to provide a structure that has one membership strand with different rates and varying access to benefits and fees for different profiles. We feel the emphasis should be on the type of relationship rather than status of a member.
