Power to Change launch annual survey of the community business market


Power to Change recently launched their annual online survey of the community business market – we would like to invite you to take part. The survey will help Power to Change to understand how it can best support and advocate for community businesses. This year the survey has a specific focus on community climate action, marginalised groups’ involvement and engagement and the contribution of community businesses to regeneration. It should take less than 20 minutes to complete.

There is a £900 cash incentive for each of five community businesses who take part. These will be allocated at random.

Power to Change are keen to receive your response even if your community business has stopped operating in the last year or even if you are unsure that you are a community business. The findings will primarily inform a public report about the experiences of community businesses.

The survey includes questions about income and staff and volunteer numbers – it would be helpful if a senior staff member completes it to ensure answers are as accurate as possible. Once you start the survey the responses you enter will be saved, so you can check information and return at a later date.
