What is Community Wealth Building?


It’s about using the combined power of communities, public bodies and private companies to support local, regional and national economies. It aims to retain wealth in the local economy, using local enterprise, labour, talent and finance to own, build, and to produce the things that we need.

CWB makes local wealth ‘stick’ by supporting the organisations most embedded in local economies, including employee owned firms, community businesses, cooperatives and social enterprises. Making the most of what we can control makes us stronger participants in our national economy.
