This is an event for anyone wanting to find out more about communities running their local services and sustaining local assets.

Chris Cowcher, Head of Community Business at Plunkett Foundation will explore how community businesses are a fantastic option in rural and urban areas when it comes to keeping the local pub, shop, library or tearoom open.

Using a range of case studies of projects supported by the Plunkett Foundation, those attending this session will learn about different business models, how to finance them and adapting the business to best meet the needs of your community. The aim is that you will leave this event feeling inspired about what could work in your community – so come prepared with ideas and ambitions and together we can explore the first steps together.
