Responding to the Levelling Up White Paper

We stand for fairness and community-led change. Our eight-point plan builds on the government’s blueprint to address UK inequality, and describes an inclusive, just and green transformation that directly benefits local people.

Support the campaign for community power

People should have the power to shape the places they live.

The We’re Right Here campaign seeks to push decision-making into the hands of communities, creating a fairer society. It’s about finding solutions to issues such as inequality, loneliness, local decline, and mistrust that are informed and shaped by local insights. 

Join us, community leaders, and campaigning organisations across the UK to call for a new Community Power Act.
