Unlocking change

LocalMotion

Participatory City

LocalMotion is a joint initiative by six funders to support communities in a more radical, joined-up way.

Together we've set out to use our collective resources, experience and strengths to maximise the 'power of place' working with local partners to challenge existing norms and shape philanthropic practice.

LocalMotion will focus on working with local partners who want to find solutions to the social and environmental issues on their doorstep. The project will focus on scoping and responding to the needs of local places, and defining project aims based on those findings.

To help us progress this work, Kathleen Kelly has been appointed Director of Collaboration for LocalMotion. Read the press release to learn more about the project.
