The Future for Communities: Continuing the conversation

Report from St George's House gathering

December 2018

In September 2018 Local Trust hosted a gathering at St George's House in Windsor to discuss the critical issues that face communities – particularly disadvantaged communities – as they move towards 2020.

To kickstart ongoing conversations about how these issues could be addressed, Local Trust brought together 20 people, from academia, foundations, government, third sector organisations and local communities themselves.

This gathering was structured around four ‘provocations’ on themes taken from The Future for Communities: Perspectives on power – place, power, transience and spaces. The provocateurs brought different perspectives to their topic – from civil society, government, community research and theory – and provided a springboard for a series of discussions over 24 hours.

Now the report from that gathering is being shared as a new briefing.
