Why Community Business Matters

In the run-up to Community Business Weekend 2019, we will be publishing a series of video stories about how five community businesses are making a difference in their area.

Each short film gives an insight into how community businesses are helping to tackle some of society’s biggest problems including loneliness, lack of training and employment opportunities, and mental health.

Remember to search for an event taking place near you this year on our community business map.
