Empowered Communities

The Future for Communities

In July 2018 The Future for Communities: Perspectives on power was published, sharing findings from an 18 month research project asking ‘What needs to happen for communities to feel and be more powerful in the future?'. The report is part of Empowered Communities in the 2020s research project launched in March 2017 to gather a wide range of views about the future for communities.

During the research many communities shared their knowledge and insight about the places they know, as people from across the UK were invited to have their say including through a series of blogs over 2017-18.

You can find out more about the research or browse the project resources.
