What is community enterprise?
Community enterprises are about people coming together to tackle a local need and making their community a better place to live.
This could mean stopping your local library, community centre, pub or shop from closing by taking over responsibility for running it. Or it could mean setting up a new enterprise that improves opportunities for local people and re-invests profits back into the community.
