We’re a small but mighty Community Interest Company with huge determination, bags of optimism and a fierce desire to make good things happen in the communities we love.
Why is it important to strive and create a healthy & inclusive economy?
We’re interested in listening and exchanging ideas with members of all communities. We invite you to join us in answering this question – what does a healthy & inclusive economy look like in Torbay? And to join us in working collaboratively to make it a reality for everyone.
We are Local Spark Torbay Community Supported Enterprise CIC – Local Spark for short. We’re a small but mighty Community Interest Company with huge determination, bags of optimism and a fierce desire to make good things happen in the communities we love.
Practically speaking, we work with members of all communities to start up and support businesses for good, build productive networks of enterprises and non-profit organisations, and engage large anchor institutions to unlock their transformative potential.
Here is Chris Gunson speaking about the partnership with Library Unlimited and Paignton Library.
