Supporting High Streets

Team work between local high street partnership and Business in the Community’s Healthy High Street champions has reaped dividends for local retailers in Stockton.
The Healthy High Streets programme ran between June 2014 and 2017. Our ambition was to create sustainable relationships between national and local businesses, town centre groups and local authorities and build a collaborative approach to high street revitalisation.
The Responsible Business Check Up identifies gaps in your company's CR provision, benchmarks it against similar companies, allows tracking of progress, and provides direction and guidance on developing a strategic approach to integrating CR throughout your operations.
The Business Connector programme increases the positive impact of business in local communities by harnessing the expertise and energy of business people to tackle local challenges.
In spite of current challenges, some town and city centres remain successful, those with strong business-led partnerships and locally active store managers. This study highlights examples of both.
