Nourishing Community Businesses: Beyond Market Development

This report, written by CRESR at Sheffield Hallam for Power to Change, builds on the themes of an earlier insight report, Food for Thought: Understanding Market Development (Dobson, Macmillan and Wells, 2020), which was prepared in late 2019 and published in February 2020. Since then there have been major changes within Power to Change, the community business sector and the social and economic context within which community businesses operate. These changes call for new reflections on what ‘market development’ now means and how community businesses can flourish in the future.
