Locality’s annual Convention brings together people who believe in the power of community from across the country.  

This annual two-day event is hosted by Locality, the national membership network supporting local community organisations. There will be plenty of opportunities to hear from fantastic local and national speakers, engage in practical workshops and go on inspiring visits to learn from other community organisations.  

Networking is a big part of the event and there is plenty of time in breaks and at dinner to chat to other Big Local areas and people working in different communities across England as well as policy makers, thinkers and doers to build connections and gain new ideas to take back to your local area.  

Local Trust are offering limited free spaces for Big Local areas and covering travel and accommodation costs. This is a special opportunity, especially if you’re thinking about and planning for life after Big Local and looking to develop connections beyond the programme.  

The offer for Big Local areas includes:  

  • A free ticket to both days of the Convention, including a sit down celebration dinner on the first night  
  • A bespoke programme recommending visits and workshops most useful to Big Local areas 
  • A dedicated space for Big Local participants to chat and network over coffee and refreshments 
  • A dedicated session for Big Local areas  
  • Free travel to and from and accommodation at the event, organised by Local Trust
