With Tory austerity blighting our communities and forcing councils to cut and privatise many local services, there is an urgent need for Labour councils to come together to develop and share ways to bring services back in house, stimulate local economies to provide decent jobs, and strengthen local democracy.
There are many creative solutions being used already, and we have set up the Community Wealth Building Unit to spread this inspiring work through online resources, regular workshops and training sessions for Labour councillors, and bespoke advice and practical support.
The Unit brings together councillors, unions, think tanks, and independent experts with experience of delivering frontline change and adopting creative methods to secure and provide vital services and stimulate sustainable economic development for communities in the face of austerity.
This website is the place to find practical resources, media coverage, and upcoming events. It is also the best way to get involved with the growing Labour-led Community Wealth Building revolution which is taking place on-the-ground in towns and cities across the country.
