Since 2012, over £155 million has been raised in community shares to save and create over 440 democratically owned and run co-operative and community businesses across the UK. Through this unique form of finance, communities have saved local shops and pubs, financed renewable energy schemes, transformed community facilities, supported local food growing, funded new football clubs, restored heritage buildings, and above all, built stronger, more vibrant, and independent communities and co-operatives.
