What is Our Place?

Our Place aims to give people more power over local services and budgets in their neighbourhoods.

Our Place supports communities and public service organisations to develop an operational plan and take control in their area to make sure that things work in the best way for local people.

Using the Our Place approach, you can influence how local services are designed, planned and delivered, this could mean:

  • setting up after-school activities for children
  • improving quality home care such as linking elderly people to volunteer helpers
  • creating jobs locally for example working with businesses to offer more local apprenticeships
