This £3.85 million England wide programme is jointly funded by Power to Change and the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government.

The programme is being led by Plunkett Foundation and delivered in collaboration with leading organisations within the sector.

More than a Pub aims to increase the number of community-owned pubs open and trading and also to grow the range of services they offer to help the wider community. Services provided by community pubs could include a shop, post office, library, internet café, cash point, police surgeries, lunch clubs for the elderly, prescription services and informal meeting spaces for a range of community activities such as sports teams, choirs, live music and walking groups.

The programme will be open for applications until all of the funding and support has been allocated. This is expected to be by September 2020.
