The Plunkett Foundation supports rural communities across the UK to set up community businesses such as community shops and pubs. They provide practical advice, support and training to help communities establish and run successful community businesses.
Whether you are looking to set up a community business from scratch or just looking for new ideas for an existing business, the Foundation can help. They have a wide range of resources online and they also run a weekly online chat so community businesses can join members of the Plunkett team to share experiences, get advice and learn from each other. If you are looking to set up a community business from your home, please contact us first for permission.
Each year Hastoe is the main sponsor for the Plunkett Foundation’s flagship Rural Community Ownership Awards.
