‘The business case for supporting the development of community business’ is a paper produces by Community Catalysts outlining the benefits and challenges to developing community businesses. This paper focuses on the direct contributions that community businesses are making to a range of local authority priorities.
Community businesses have an ethos that encourages and enables volunteering and are focused on single neighbourhood. Because of this they can be easily overlooked by policy-makers and commissioners who are seeking to respond to multiple changing needs and concerns in the wider health and care sector.
