A vision for the future of community business – what you said

A consortium of organisations – including Co-operatives UK, Forum for the Future, Locality, Plunkett Foundation, Power to Change and Social Enterprise UK – has been working with community businesses to define a positive, inspiring vision for the sector in 2030.

Since January, Forum for the Future has engaged more than 40 community businesses through workshops, interviews and an online survey. They have spoken to more than 20 other experts who are either active in the field, or have a perspective on external trends and changes impacting the sector. You can now read the draft vision and they want your feedback.

Community businesses take a range of forms, from community interest companies and social enterprises to local co-ops and mutuals, and much more. If you work in or are involved with the sector in any way, the project partners would love to hear your thoughts on the draft vision. You can send your comments via an online feedback form by Monday, 25 June.
