As consensus builds around the importance of investing in local communities to tackle health and social inequalities, Power to Change tells the story of the Bromley by Bow Centre and our respected community-first approach in two published reports.

The first report; Backing our Neighbourhoods: making levelling up work by putting communities in the lead is a report that covers:

  1. The role community organisations like the Centre can play in levelling up
  2. The policy change needed to harness of the power of community-led social infrastructure for levelling up
  3. Recommendations: A neighbourhood strategy for levelling up

We are featured in the report (Page 25) along with a number of other best-practice community projects from around the country. Read more.

Read about how one of our projects, Communities Driving Change, embodies local community development; driven by and for local people to create a lasting legacy.

You can also read about the Centre in another 2021 report from Power to Change, Building our social infrastructure: why levelling up means creating a more socially connected Britain.
