Locality is the leading nationwide network of development trusts, community enterprises, settlements and social action centres.

Locality two years on

We merged Bassac and the Development Trusts Association to create Locality in April 2011. Our vision was ambitious: “to make every community a place of possibility”. So how do we see things now?

Read Locality two years on, written by our Chair and Chief Executive, to find out.

Who are we?

We are a national network of over 700 inspiring, ambitious and dedicated community-led organisations and 200 associate partners. View the interactive map.

The Locality staff team works all around England but our head office is near Old Street in East London. We are a team of friendly and hard-working community-sector professionals working to support our members and the communities they serve.

What do we do?

All our work aims to inspire local communities to change and improve.

  • We help people to set up locally owned and led organisations
  • We support organisations to exchange ideas and best practice on community asset ownership, community enterprise and social action
  • We work to influence government and others at national and local level to build support and investment for the movement.

Our projects

We also run a wide range of major national projects, including:
Community Organisers
Community Rights,
Neighbourhood Planning.
