Up and down the UK people are working together to support each other, create good local jobs and improve their areas. And by doing so, communities help to tackle some of the biggest problems facing us.

Problems like inequality, local decline, loneliness and mistrust. Together we are a movement for Community Power. Together we can change the system and bring about a Community Power Act. Here we are showcasing just some of the change makers behind our movement.

We would love to hear from you – please submit your story below.
