New Keep it Local research
In March 2020, we published new research looking at why councils are increasingly choosing to Keep it Local. We worked with seven community organisations across the country exploring their role and their distinctive offer to local communities.
The research also explores the six Keep it Local principles and how councils can apply them to harness the power of community.
