The High Street Industry Movement
The future of the high street depends on how we all act now.
A worst case scenario is clear for everyone to experience today but this is not the future we need to live into.
Government has announced the most substantial package of financial support our market has ever seen.
Every business and every high street now needs a new plan to weather this storm.
We are helping make this a reality across the UK; supporting high street businesses, local authorities, community champions, trade associations, landlords, industry innovators, and others, through the Coronavirus-era and beyond.
Diverse, successful high streets benefit everyone. The more of us who join, the stronger we all become.
Join the movement. Stay in touch. Spread the word.
High Street Manifesto 2016
In August 2016 we released a manifesto. It communicated our vision of the future and how we can achieve it together. It focused our research and campaigns that engaged over 20,000 high street businesses and supporters in 2017 alone. It started a movement.
“In the middle of the most transformational period in the history of high streets”
“A better connected, digitally enabled, more sustainable high street needs to emerge”
“The more of us who join, the stronger we all become. We can all play a role”
The High Street Advisory Board
The board formed to identify and evaluate recommendations for success on the high street.
It’s free to join and there are various benefits including: early insight into our local campaigns, PR opportunities and findings from our research.
