2021 Better Form of Business Reports

Our flagship reports capture the headline trends of both community-owned pubs and shops in 2020, and bring the stats to life with insights directly from community businesses themselves.

2021 Impact Report

Plunkett Foundation’s 2021 Impact Report reveals that the number of community businesses has continued to rise, in spite of the disruption of the pandemic. The report also shows that more people than ever before are now interested in setting up a community business, with over 300 communities across the UK getting in touch with Plunkett for start-up support last year.
