More than a Pub programme re-opened on Wednesday 19 August. This means that once again the Plunkett Foundation will be able to support groups at all stages of their community pub journey, from an idea through to opening and trading.
The More than a Pub programme provides business development support to enable the community control of pubs in both rural and urban communities across England.
Funded by Power to Change and the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) and led by the Plunkett Foundation.
Community pubs are owned by members (sometimes known as shareholders) and are run democratically on the basis of one-member-one-vote. Membership is voluntary, affordable, and open to all in a community, and is the mechanism for ensuring the community has a genuine say in how the business is run. Community pubs are thriving where private enterprise has failed
