New Local

New Local is a think tank and network working to energise local government, improve public services and empower communities. For over 25 years, New Local has researched some of the most pressing issues society facing today – such as housing, social care, welfare and economic equality. It’s also home to a network of over 60 local authorities – supporting those at the front line to transform services and meet increasing demand, by working alongside their communities.

At the heart of New Local’s work is ‘community power’ – the belief that people should be given the means to transform the places they live and the services they use. It believes this is key to reducing the burden on our public services, and to creating a better society for all.
