About Community Enterprise

We help communities, charities and social enterprises to make good things happen, from food initiatives and credit unions to community run sports facilities, we help organisations become more sustainable by generating income and moving away from grant funding.

We’re a social enterprise and our mission is to help people gain the capacity and confidence to improve their community through enterprise. We’re a small professional team that provide personalised support to individuals and groups. Each member of the team has an area of specialist knowledge such as accounting, fundraising, marketing and impact measurement.

We deliver support when it’s needed. We charge for large pieces of work, such as business plans, and all of the profit we generate is used to subsidise free support. This allows us to build long term supportive relationships with our clients.

Our mission is to tackle inequality, strengthen communities and improve the performance and impact of businesses which contribute to our society.
