Who we are and what we do
Power to Change is an independent trust, whose funding is used to strengthen community businesses across England. We received a £150 million endowment in 2015 from Big Lottery Fund. At a time when many parts of the UK face cuts, neglect and social problems, we are helping local people come together to take control, and make sure their local areas survive and stay vibrant.
No one understands a community better than the people who live there. In some areas, people are already coming together to solve problems for themselves, and we support them as they run businesses which help their whole community and recycles money back into the local area. Community businesses revive local assets, protect the services people rely on, and address local needs.
