Join our call for community power

We believe people should have the power to shape the places they live.

That’s why we’re part of We’re Right Here – the campaign for community power with six local leaders at the helm. Together, we’re proposing a new Community Power Act, which seeks to push greater decision-making into the hands of communities, creating a fairer society.

'Levelling up must give people ownership over their own story for change'

We stand for fairness and community-led change. Our eight-point plan responds to the government’s Levelling Up blueprint to address UK inequality, and describes an inclusive, just and green transformation that directly benefits local people.
