Locality exists to support community anchor organisations. We want to see more of them and in more places, and we want to help them to develop and grow.

What is a community anchor organisation?

Community anchor organisations are independent community-led organisations operating in a local area. They are firmly rooted in a sense of place, and committed to positive economic, social or environmental change.

Many community anchor organisations operate in very challenging circumstances, and are at the front line in dealing with serious social and economic problems in areas with high measures of deprivation.

Locality’s Theory of Change

We aim to create as positive a climate as possible to support the growth of this sector, using a membership model as the basis of our approach.

How are we going to do this? Read our Theory of Change to find out.
