In an age of ongoing austerity, Locality’s Lifeboat Service provides Locality members at risk of crisis with a proven, cost-effective lifeline and a route to financial stability.
We are in a far better place and that is due to the work Locality has undertaken with us.

Waving Not Drowning sets out our learning from supporting members through Lifeboat.

It includes an analysis of the types of problems faced by community organisations and the range of support and skills which are most frequently required to tackle them.

It also makes recommendations for grant providers, lenders and others with a vested interest in reducing the need for crisis intervention in community organisations.
