When you’re faced with new challenges ahead of you, it can help to meet another organisation who has gone through something similar. Their experience can help you avoid common pitfalls and give you new ideas and fresh thinking.

Locality’s funded peer learning programme can help you access the right advice, from the right people, at the right time for you.

During current conditions, this programme offers both digital peer mentoring and face-to-face opportunities, so that you can identify new ideas and solutions in the way that best suits you.

We will match you to people and organisations based on experience, background and interest, or you can use the member directory to chose who you’d like to learn from yourself.

Perhaps you’d like to set up a learning group?  We can help you get started, provide guidance and initial online support.

You will make practical and meaningful connections to help you achieve your goals, find out what works (and what doesn’t!) and get the confidence to feel like “yeah, I can do that!”.

Who can apply?

You’ll need the Essentials or Membership Plus package to apply. You can access up to £500 to help you get the most out of your learning opportunity.

We encourage you to work with your fellow participant organisation(s) to decide how the funding should be spent to ensure everyone benefits.

Apply via a short form accessed via the members-only section of our website or by contacting members@locality.org.uk

Applications are continuously assessed, though we cannot guarantee funds will be available at all times.
