It’s time to turn the tide on large-scale outsourcing. For services that transform lives: Keep it Local.

By unlocking the power of community, local authorities can create more responsive services that reduce long-term costs and invest in the local economy.

We know the challenges facing local authorities are unprecedented. With budgets shrinking and demand rising, many local authorities have sought savings through big outsourcing contracts.

However, following many incidences of “scale fail” it’s time to think again. We need to Keep it Local and unlock the power of community.

Keep it Local is brought to you in partnership with Lloyds Bank Foundation for England and Wales.
