• We connect

    Our network is home to over 60 of the UK’s most innovative councils. We bring them together to generate ideas; build connections and meet challenges.

  • We explore

    Our team looks into some of the most pressing issues we’re facing today - from welfare support, to social care, to building economic resilience. All of this work is framed by our vision of powerful communities and stronger public services.

  • We drive change

    We look for new, community-based solutions to some of our society’s biggest challenges - and team up with people from across all parts of government and communities to achieve change.
