We help rural communities tackle the issues they face through community business. These are enterprises owned and run by the community on behalf of the community. They come in many forms such as shops, pubs and woodlands. Community businesses can develop and protect valuable assets and services. They can also address issues including isolation, loneliness, wellbeing, work and training.
Plunkett is proud to support and contribute to My Community. Together we want to ensure people are inspired to make their communities better places in which to live and work. Community businesses are resilient forms of business and bring a wealth of social and economic benefits. Plunkett has the expertise and resources to support rural groups as they explore setting up a community business. And we offer support at every stage of their journey. We want to help community groups find the support they need quickly and easily.
