About this cause

About our cause

ViRSA supports rural communities wanting to set up and run a community owned shop. Community ownership is often the only viable option for villages wishing to retain or introduce a local shop. Currently, there are around 150 community owned shops in England. Most of these have been established with ViRSA's support. The numbers are increasing as rural communities find that community ownership is often the only way to have a shop in the village. ViRSA provides practical assistance through a network of community retail advisers providing front-line support to rural communities, online guidance, information services and signposting links from the ViRSA website.
