Keep it Local Manifesto – How national government can support partnerships between councils and communities

New Keep it Local Manifesto

Locality and the Keep it Local councils are calling on the government to put community partnerships, between councils and community organisations, at the heart of recovery plans. The Keep it Local Manifesto sets out three big opportunities the government has to support these partnerships and nine recommendations of how they can do that.

The Keep it Local Manifesto harnesses the learning from our Keep it Local Councils and their community partners. It shows how the powerful partnerships these places have built have charted a way through the coronavirus crisis – and provides us with a blueprint for recovery.

The Keep it Local Manifesto sets out what policy change is needed at a national level to support these partnerships. These partnerships, which emerged and were built on during the pandemic, have the potential to unlock the power of community.
