There are nearly 8,000 community businesses in England but few people know what they are, or how they are improving life for many communities across the country. So, in 2016 Power to Change launched Community Business Weekend to shine a light on them. Last year saw over 17,000 visit 225 community businesses to learn all about the impact they are having, and how to get involved.
Now in its fourth year, Community Business Weekend will run from Thursday 16th May to Sunday 19th May, with people across the country encouraged to visit a community business near them and find out what they do.
This year’s theme is #CommunityBusinessMatters. We’re asking people involved in community businesses and local people to share why #CommunityBusinessMatters to them and their local area.
Our campaign guide has lots of ways for you to support Community Business Weekend 2019. We have tried to make it as simple as possible for you to get involved, but if you require anything else from us please email firstname.lastname@example.org
