The New Economics Foundation has produced a report into the role of Community Businesses in the provision of Sustainable Social Care.  Some  of the findings are that Community Businesses although small are:

  • keeping people well through an active focus on health and wellbeing;
  • enabling people to take collective control at a local level;
  • connecting local social infrastructure to create social, economic and environmental value; and
  • providing sustainable employment and acting as a driver of local economic development.
