How to put communities in charge
To help put communities in charge, we’re calling for:
- Resources to be made available to the people and places which need it most
- Local people to scrutinise all spending decisions through a dramatic increase in accountability, including citizen panels
- At least a quarter of the fund to go directly to local people to invest in their own priorities for the economy

Our report outlines the key policy detail of our proposal and the evidence that sits behind our case for putting Communities in Charge.
Why communities should be in charge
We’ve come together to ensure that communities themselves are given control of the fund. They know best what their places need, so let’s put them in charge.
The Shared Prosperity Fund must be designed to tackle inequality and to support grassroots activity which benefit areas which have often been overlooked.
