Community Pub Business Support Programme (England)

Communities looking to take responsibility for and ownership of their local pub, through purchase or long-term lease can now apply for financial support through the Community Pub Business Support Programme.

A total of £3.62 million is available over two years and the support package includes business development support, advice and loan and grant funding. The financial support includes flexible bursary awards of up to £2,500 to fund pre-feasibility costs such as public consultation and valuations and combined loan and grant funding up to £100,000. Although the programme is aimed primarily at communities considering taking responsibility for and ownership of their local pub, in some cases existing community-owned or managed pub-based businesses may be considered, if they are looking to diversify for community benefit and can demonstrate a clear economic case.

To apply, communities need to fill out an initial enquiry form or call the programme advice line for more information on 01993 810730.
