Why Community Business Matters

To celebrate Community Business Weekend 2019 we created a series of short films featuring five community businesses who are transforming their local areas.

Each 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.

There are 7,800 community businesses in England. Tell us why your community business matters to you – post comments and photos on social media with the hashtag #CommunityBusinessMatters and we’ll share as many of your posts as possible!

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