Want to grow your influence, your services and at the same time reduce your costs? Locality’s collaboration support service Connect For can help you.

Effective collaboration can help your organisation to manage its costs, sustain its social mission and impact in the community and have greater choice and determination about its position in the market place.

Our expertise

Connect For is brought to you by Locality, the UK’s leading network of development trusts, settlements, social action centres and community enterprises formed through the merger of bassac and the Development Trusts Association. We have been supporting partnership working since the 1920s. In the early 2000′s bassac produced ‘Sharing Without Merging’ (SWiM) a report based on practical case studies of what works in partnerships.

We have built a strong reputation of providing expertise support, resources and knowledge on collaborative working across the voluntary and community sector.  Our dynamic practice-based work is drawn from the knowledge and experience of our network of over 650 community owned and led organisations that are leading the way in modernising the way they do business and generating efficiency savings in order to support their social justice aims and benefit the communities they serve.

Our collaboration support offer is also complemented by the specialist skills of Locality’s staff team in developing community assets, community enterprise and social action.
