This report takes a strategic look at the role community businesses can play in addressing the challenges of UK high streets. It considers how community businesses can succeed in high streets, what they can contribute, and what support they need to make a long-term difference to restore ‘pride in place’ in struggling town centres.
The research, undertaken in spring 2022, was guided by three questions:
• How can community businesses succeed in high street contexts?
• How can community businesses contribute to high street regeneration?
• What is the strategic potential of support for community businesses in high streets
