Future for Communities
In partnership with Local Trust
This consultation focused on the future for communities and place, exploring the importance of community as a key issue for policy makers and practitioners. It drew on current research conducted by the Institute for Voluntary Action Research (IVAR) and Local Trust on the necessary conditions for creating empowered communities in the 2020s which is due to report in the summer.It also considered the emerging findings of the Inquiry into the Future of Civil Society due to report in autumn 2018. The consultation took place at a critical time in this policy space, as the Government considered the content of its own Civil Society Strategy (on which it launched its own consultation in March).
