Has your organisation ever been stuck and unsure how to move forward? We’ll fund you to learn from someone who has ‘been there, done that’.
[Locality's funded peer learning programme] helped us actually do something about an idea we had been thinking about for a while.​ Without it we'd still be sat here thinking!" Locality member

When you’re faced with organisational difficulties or have 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.

Unfortunately, grants can‘t be used for salaries, bursaries for training courses or seminars, or for the purchase of capital equipment, software or publications.

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

We’re happy to help you to identify exchange partners, or discuss your idea in more detail.

Peer learning for Essentials and Membership Plus members

Essentials or Membership Plus members can apply for a grant of up to £500 to take part in a peer learning opportunity.

We’ll match you with people and organisations based on your (and their) experience, background and interests to make your connections more meaningful, as well as give you practical solutions.

From time to time we also offer bursaries to attend specific study visits, conferences and learning events both at home and abroad.
