Policy

We actively seek to create an environment in which the community business sector will thrive, which means championing community ownership and advocating for the sector, to create a supportive policy, funding and advisory landscape for community businesses to operate within. Above all, we want to create a smoother journey for communities to set up community businesses and make it easier for those already running them.
