Many thanks to Locality for sending us this article:
Locality is the leading nationwide network of settlements, development trusts, social action centres and community enterprises.
We believe that every community is a place of possibility.
We are a national network of over 700 community-led organisations. Together, we form a powerful movement for social change. We support current and aspiring members to promote community enterprise, community asset ownership and social action within their communities.
Our unique approach to helping community enterprises means we give support at each stage of the journey. We have a track record of developing new and existing community enterprises that drive positive social change
Community assets are land and buildings owned or managed by community organisations. Locality members have a long history of using asset-based development to achieve long term social, economic, and environmental improvements to their local area
Because it’s member-driven, Locality is one of the most effective and influential organisations in the country.
Locality works with hundreds of inspiring organisations who believe, like us, that things can change through social action.
