Our annual report 2011/12 covers Locality’s first year of operation.
“Locality’s first year has been remarkable – a roller coaster ride for all of us. We faced our challenges head on during 2011-12, listening to and responding to our members at every step. As a result, in a remarkably short period of time we’ve become one of the most influential organisations in our sector: a real force for change in exceptionally difficult times.”
Joanna Holmes, Chair of the Locality Board

Our 2011/12 annual report covers Locality’s work with our members: through the Community Alliance Regional Programme and the Communitybuilders programme we’ve been able to help many
members build their capacity, launch new enterprises and win the investment to develop new community assets.
Our Neighbourhood Planning work has brought together communities across the country to agree their own development priorities while the passion, energy and drive shown through the Community Organisers programme has been inspirational to witness. And, of course, we’ve continued to lead the way on the community asset transfer agenda.
We’ve also been able to significantly influence government policy. The Localism Bill was the culmination of many years of campaigning and we’re delighted to be managing the national Support Services for the new Community Rights to Bid, Challenge and Build.
We’re working with many government departments and we’re particularly pleased to be one of only 12 networks recognised as a strategic partner by the Office for Civil Society.
