New Local is an independent think tank and network with a mission to transform public services and unlock community power.
- We are home to a network of 60+ councils, united in a drive to create sustainable and community-led public services.
- Our research team explores new ideas on some of the most pressing issues we’re facing today – from welfare support, to social care, to building economic resilience.
- At the heart of our work is the belief in community power – the idea that more power and resources should be given to people in communities. We believe this paradigm shift is needed to create sustainable public services, better places to live – and enhanced wellbeing for all.
