On 1 – 5 November, we are holding the first-ever Community Wealth Fund Week! Over the past couple of years, the campaign has gone from strength to strength and now boasts an impressive coalition of over 440 civil society, public and private sector organisations. Our mission is simple – to secure transformative, long term, community-led investment in the most deprived and ‘left behind’ neighbourhoods of the country.
During the Community Wealth Fund Week, we’ll explore how we build on the campaign’s success to date and go forward in winning the case for community-led change and social infrastructure investment. You’ll hear about why alliance members back the proposal, the reasons it has attracted significant cross-party political support, the wealth of evidence underpinning calls for community power, and different resources to help you lobby the case for a Community Wealth Fund.
Alliance members will also be able to attend a number of events, including a special parliamentary reception in collaboration with the APPG for ‘left behind’ neighbourhoods, and an online workshop for our council/combined authority members, hosted by the leading think-tank, New Local.*
Throughout the week, we’ll be sharing videos, snazzy infographics, helpful resources, impactful research, and photos of all the action, on our Twitter. Make sure that you’re following us not to miss out!
