Community business and anchor institutions

This report by the Centre for Local Economic Strategies (CLES) seeks to develop an understanding of how anchor institutions can support community businesses to evolve and realise their local economic and social potential. The report draws on primary research conducted in three of Power to Change’s priority places – Liverpool, Bristol and Ipswich. The research found a number of drivers that enable, and barriers that prevent, more collaborative working by community businesses and anchor institutions for the benefit of local economies, places and people.
