Keep it Local – The campaign calling for councils to commission locally. For services that transform lives.
By unlocking the power of community, local authorities can create more responsive services that reduce long-term costs and invest in the local economy.
The challenges facing local authorities are unprecedented. With budgets shrinking and demand rising, many local authorities have sought savings through big outsourcing contracts but following many incidences of “scale fail” it’s time to think again.
Changing direction is a difficult thing to do, so the Keep it Local Network in partnership with Lloyds Bank Foundation will support this journey and help make change happen.
