New Local and the New Social Covenant Unit are pleased to co-publish this report by 10 Conservative MPs from the 2019 intake, making the case for community power as the future of the party.

Trusting the People explores how to level up the country through a ‘double devolution’ to councils and communities.

It includes recommendations on how to trust the people to transform our public services, run a stronger economy, and build stronger communities.  

This report is the first in a series of New Local reports with UK political parties.

New Local and the New Social Covenant Unit would like to thank the report co-authors Siobhan Baillie MP, Miriam Cates MP, Nick Fletcher MP, Jo Gideon MP, Jonathan Gullis MP, Paul Howell MP, Jerome Mayhew MP, Robin Millar MP, Kieran Mullan MP, and Jane Stevenson MP.
