Who can join the Keep it Local Network?
It’s for councillors, commissioners, community organisations such as charities, policy experts, procurement officers, consultants – anyone who wants to Keep it Local to create better services that transform lives.
What does the Keep it Local Network do?
We’ll be going to different places across the country to learn about what’s happening, hear inspiring stories, and discuss how to overcome barriers.
We’ll share the learnings from these workshops and other activities in monthly emails, along with other materials. We’ll be engaging with a wide range of people involved in designing, commissioning and delivering of public services.
We want to draw on the latest thinking and best practice to co-create a new approach to commissioning that transforms lives.
As part of the network, you’ll receive:
- Inspiring stories about how a Keep it Local approach to commissioning transforms lives
- Invitations to regular Keep it Local Network events across the country
- Expert-led webinars and Q+A debates exploring how to overcome the practical challenges to reshaping service delivery
- Updates on current trends and news
- The opportunity to attend a national Keep it Local conference
