Locality campaigns on key issues which we know affect our members and the communities they serve.

We are also proud to support the campaigns of other third sector organisations, which we believe reflect our aims and mission.

Locality’s campaigns

Keep it Local: Local, community-focused services give us what we really need when we need it, often at a lower cost.

We are campaigning for public services to be  commissioned and delivered at a neighbourhood level, not supplied by large-scale, centralised organisations.

Places & Spaces – The Future of community asset ownershipEngland’s public land and buildings are at risk of being lost forever unless urgent action is taken to protect them.

We are calling for a £1bn Community Asset Investment Plan to save the nation’s public assets.

Locality Public Sector Hero Awards: Our Public Sector Hero Awards recognise public sector employees or councillors who give outstanding support to the community sector.

Community Assets in Difficult Ownership: We’re running a campaign to raise awareness of precious buildings at risk from poor ownership.

Our past campaigns

Community Allowance Locality & partners’ campaign to enable community organisations to pay unemployed people for part-time work without it disrupting their benefits.

Campaigns we support

Life Support – Mind’s Life Support campaign shines a spotlight on the excellent ‘life support’ services being provided to people with mental health issues around the country, and makes the case for their funding to local authorities and other local commissioners.

Keep Volunteering Voluntary – Workfare schemes force unemployed people to carry out unpaid work or face benefit sanctions that can cause hardship and destitution. We believe in keeping volunteering voluntary and will not participate in government workfare schemes.
