Investing in community shares is a simple, direct and engaging way of supporting businesses that serve your community.

Since 2009 over 120,000 people have invested over £100m to support over 400 community businesses throughout the UK.

Many investors in community shares are first-time investors. Community shares can save local shops and pubs, finance renewable energy schemes, transform community facilities, support local food growing, fund new football clubs, restore heritage buildings, and above all, build stronger, more vibrant and independent communities.
