What is the Community Enterprise Checker?

The Community Enterprise Checker is an online tool that enables you to assess your community enterprise, or community organisation and find out if it’s investment ready.

The Community Enterprise Checker asks you a series of questions about your business, including your systems, people and financial information. When you’ve completed all the questions, the Community Enterprise Checker will produce a summary report for you, with key recommendations.

The aim is to help you get your business to the point where it’s ready to receive investment.

The checker reviews your situation against the ‘five pillars’ of investment readiness:

  • Governance and leadership
  • Market potential
  • Financial performance
  • Financial control
  • Quality and impact
