Create good jobs
Community businesses create good jobs for people who need them most.
They provide stable jobs for 37,800 people, concentrated in the most deprived areas of England. More than 7 in 10 of these jobs go to local people.
They support people who might otherwise be cut out of the jobs market because of their history, or challenges with their physical or mental health. Almost one in five people who work in community businesses were previously unemployed and looking for work.
