Developed by NESTA and the Big Lottery Fund, the programme has invested in 17 different organisations and partnerships around England, selected because of their ambition to test out innovative ways of building co-operation, collaboration and action within their communities
This paper presents observations, drawing on evidence from the people that are funding, delivering and supporting the 17 projects. The paper identifies both the common features of their approach and what is distinctive about how they apply their methods. It also maps their activities against a process of change to illustrate how their approaches are enabling community-led activities and solutions to develop.
