The new scheme will focus on getting one-to-one support to groups that need it the most. This will include free practical support from Plunkett’s national network of specialist community businesses advisers. All forms of community business – including woodlands, farms, bakeries, pubs and shops – will be able to get support, advice and guidance on a range of issues such as;
- developing short – medium term cash flow,
- reviewing business plans,
- applying for funding,
- upholding good practice governance,
- utilising community shares and accessing government support.
