Putting Communites at the heart of our high streets
New research highlights how critical communities are to saving Britain’s high streets. In order to level up town centres across the country, serious support and investment is needed.
The report, from Sheffield Hallam University, commissioned by Power to Change, provides recommendations for government, and 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.
