Keep it Local

Keep it Local

for better services

Our public services are vital – there to help us live our lives, whoever we are. But they are failing us because they are being outsourced to national companies, distant from the communities they are supposed to serve.

There’s a better way – Keep it Local. Community-focused services delivered at a local level that give us what we need, when we need it – delivering services that work for the individual, the community and the taxpayer.

We are campaigning for a better way – Keep it Local

We are campaigning for public services to be commissioned and delivered at a neighbourhood level – instead of supplied by large national companies.

Let’s bust the bigger is better myth – local public services give better outcomes & value – support #KeepitLocal [Click to tweet this]

Our research proves that local organisations offer substantially better outcomes and value, because they know their communities and have a flexible approach, which is vastly more effective than standardised, one-size-fits-all services.

Community-focused services delivered at a local level give us what we need, when we need it – providing better value for, us, the taxpayer.

Red tape and endless assessments

Every year, millions of pounds are wasted in a broken system which ties us up in red tape and repeat referrals instead of actually helping us.

It’s time we busted the myth that bigger is better. Outsourcing to national companies is making the crisis worse. Economies of scale and standardisation of services are the problem, not the solution. They lead to a drop in quality and a rise in costs.

We are being let down by public services that only offer one-size-fits-all solutions. We deserve better. We should be treated as people, not numbers.
