Locality is the leading nationwide network of settlements, development trusts, social action centres and community enterprises.
We believe that every community is a place of possibility.
We help people to set up locally owned and led organisations. We support existing organisations to work effectively through peer-to-peer exchange of knowledge and best practice on community asset ownership, collaboration, commissioning support, social enterprise, community voice and advocacy.
Locality also works to influence government and others at national and local level to build support and investment for the movement.
Locality, the trading name of Locality (UK), was formed in April 2011 by the merger of bassac and the Development Trusts Association, two leading networks of community owned and led organisations.
