The Community Business Market in 2016

The Power to Change Research Institute commissioned Social Finance in July 2016 to provide an updated assessment of the state of the community business market. This follows ‘What if we ran it ourselves?’ and ‘The State of the Community Business Market’.

The report finds that the number of community businesses in England has grown by 5% in the last year, outstripping growth by both charities (1%) and small businesses (2.3%).
