A community business is set up and led by local people to look after what matters to them. Any profits flow back into the business to deliver positive local impact.
Watch some case studies to hear some community business ideas, or hear from Claire Mappin at the Burton Street Foundation in Sheffield talk about their community business and how it benefits the people of Hillsborough.

01/12 – Baily Thomas Charitable Fund
Learning disabilities (intellectual disabilities), and autism are our priorities for funding. We consider projects for children or adults. We do not give grants for research into or care of people with mental illness, dyslexia, dyspraxia nor ADHD, if they do not also have learning disabilities (intellectual disabilities).
We give grants for…
Projects working with children and young people of 18 years and under experiencing disadvantage through:
- Illness, distress, abuse or neglect
- Any kind of disability
- Behavioural or psychological difficulties
- Living in poverty or situations of deprivation
Projects we fund make differences in children’s lives that help prevent or overcome the effects of the disadvantages they face. Projects achieve these differences by either working directly with children or seeking to improve their social and physical environments.
In our Small Grants programme we are looking for projects where a relatively small amount of money can make a big difference for children and young people.
