Community Shops – A better form of business
Community Shops: A better form of business is the most extensive and comprehensive research report to have been produced on the community shop sector in the UK. It was first published in 2011, and has become a much anticipated annual report ever since, growing with additional information year on year. Initially intended to be an internal document, the report now serves as a start‑up guide for new groups, a benchmarking tool for existing community shops, and is used by funders and support organisations (including Plunkett Foundation) to future‑proof services and investment decisions concerning community shops.
The data collection, analysis and report‑writing was undertaken by Plunkett Foundation staff and advisers. This work was only made possible by the generous contribution from Power to Change Research Institute.
