3. About Locality
Our members operate across England in many kinds of communities, both urban and rural, and undertake a wide variety of different activities, reflecting the communities they serve. What unites our members is a sense of ambition for their local neighbourhood, an enterprising approach to finding solutions to local problems, and a clear sense that activity should be community-led and based on self-determination. They act as anchors within their community, providing stability and a responsiveness to local need. Community ownership of assets, community enterprise and service delivery are key drivers of the sustainability of our member organisations and our network contains a huge reservoir of inspiring evidence for successful change. Our membership therefore has huge strength, reach and influence. The role of Locality as a network of members is to ensure that this reach and influence has an impact nationally, using the resources across the membership to influence positive change and support our member organisations in the work they do locally.
