Locality has brought together in one place lots of valuable information and contacts that groups can use.

Our library group has just joined Locality, but I know from past experience and Locality input to the CML conference that we can only benefit from the support and information we will get. We have attended a Locality event at Castleford, and found the contacts and information very useful.

Networking with Locality members

1. To use Locality services to help our volunteer team to be able to access the support and information they require, to improve our work in the Library and our wider network within the community.
