Plunkett is the recognised national supporter of community-owned shops in the UK. We have supported the majority of the 300 community shops open today in some way, whether it’s help finding funding, specialist business advice, marketing support or space and time to learn from and be inspired by each other through our online forum or one of our networking events.
Our experience of working with community-owned shops has given us knowledge and expertise unparalleled in the sector. We listen to the needs of rural communities and apply this knowledge to their own situation, helping people to apply the power of community ownership to a range of rural enterprises, from transport and broadband to laundrettes and bookshops.
Whether you are an already-established community-owned shop, a community just in the initial stages of setting up an enterprise or an individual or supportive organisation, we have a membership package that will suit you.
