No one understands a community better than the people who live there. We work with community businesses to revive local assets, protect the services people rely on, and address local needs.
Our vision is to create better places through community business. We will use our endowment to strengthen community businesses across England. This means providing money, advice and support to help local people come together to take control. At a time when many parts of the country face cuts, neglect and social problems, we want to make sure local areas survive and stay vibrant. We do so by being bold, collaborative, open and informed.
Our endowment came from the Big Lottery Fund in 2015 (now The National Lottery Community Fund).
