HOME 5 Our work 5 Who we work with

We back community businesses to make places better. But we don’t do it alone, we work in partnership to make our influence and voice stronger. 

We partner with a range of organisations including regional and local authorities, think tanks and research institutes, to develop and test ways to grow and strengthen community businesses, and to generate evidence of their impact.  

And we work closely with a range of organisations that provide tailored support to help you grow and develop your community business.
