In partnership with Local Trust

The event discussed different approaches to community wealth building. Drawing on international practice, including the work of the Democracy Collaborative in the US, we considered whether and how such approaches might both be adapted and integrated in England to support our most deprived communities.  For the purposes of the consultation, we adopted their definition of community wealth building as  ‘a systems approach to economic development that creates an inclusive, sustainable economy built on locally rooted and broadly held ownership’.
