supporting local businesses
As a member of Acommunity there is no extra charge to list your local independent business in our Business Directory. Acommununity’s membership is a ‘warm market’ where businesses can build their reputation with a receptive target audience. There is also an option to market offers and promotions and to participate in the Voucher Scheme (A fore-runner to our Complementary Currency). We support the local business sector as the provider of local jobs, that keeps money local and helps maintain a resilient and sustainable local economy.
communicate, collaborate, cooperate.
Access to “things” is increasingly preferred over ownership. People recognise the waste in our throw-away society. The New Economy could be based upon sharing, community and the common good. Initiatives are emerging focused upon a more ethical, caring, sustainable, inclusive and connected society. Social, economic and environmental concerns are issues that you can help address at a local level, by a shared spirit of giving rather than receiving. Acommunity can be the conduit to allow you to achieve this, to communicate, collaborate and cooperate where you live, to build something better for everyone.
