I work at the Plunkett Foundation, an organisation that helps rural communities through community ownership to take control of the issues affecting them. We’re involved in a whole range of interesting stuff that helps to support rural communities to set up community-owned enterprises like community-owned shops and co-operative pubs.
The purpose of this blog is to share with our members, the communities we support, the people we work with and the wider world what we do and why.
The blog looks at what we’re doing to influence policy and practice to make it easier for people to set up and run community-owned enterprises. Alongside hopefully interesting posts about the wonderful world of community-owned enterprises I’ll also be posting comments and updates on various policies that we’re keen on influencing for the benefit of rural communities.
