Ashington Minors is an established childcare nursery in a former mining town in north-east England.
It plans to engage the local community and strengthen its business model through a community share offer. Ashington Minors presents a challenging example, in a community where affordable childcare is important for families on low incomes.
Inviting parents, grandparents, neighbours and friends to invest in the nursery puts a responsibility on Ashington Minors to be a successful and profitable enterprise. Its members will understand the importance of achieving high occupancy rates, and making sure that the nursery is the first choice for local parents.
