COVID-19 & Coastal Communities: Investing in the social economy to revive seaside resorts and coastal towns

The economic impact of COVID-19 has been severe, but some places have been hit harder than others. Coastal communities have been particularly exposed to the economic damage caused by the nationwide lockdown.

In this report, written and researched by our Policy Lead Will Thomson,  SIB sets out out a blueprint for ‘Building Back Better’ by investing in a social economy that generates good jobs and secure incomes for local people. The social economy provides more jobs by turnover than the private sector, creates jobs in some of the most disadvantaged areas, and invests in employees to improve the quality of their jobs.

Read our principles for investing in a fair recovery and policy recommendations in the report via the attachment below.
