The Role of Community Businesses in Providing Health & Wellbeing Services

Commissioned by Power to Change

The Power to Change charitable trust commissioned CEEDR to conduct a study on ‘The Role of Community Businesses in Providing Health & Wellbeing Services’. Power to Change (part of the Big Lottery Fund) supports community led businesses set up and led by local people. Any profits flow back into the business to deliver positive local impact. Despite the strong growth potential of the emerging area of Health & Social Care in the community business sector, it is not currently well understood, revealing an interesting niche to be explored in more depth. Wellbeing community businesses are more able to understand the multiple needs of communities and are thus better able to respond by adopting a more wellbeing model of health that goes beyond the established reductionist medical and health service models.  The research provides insights for the community business sector more broadly while also identifying the specific challenges health and Wellbeing related community businesses face.
