Place-based approach

The places in which we live and work influence what we do and determine many of our relationships. And a shared sense of place can unite us despite our differences.

Rather than focusing on isolated interventions, a ‘place-based approach’ makes the most of these connections.

By considering the whole community—how it works and what it needs—and collaborating with different sectors, a place-based approach aims to make a lasting difference to people’s lives.

We believe the place-based model has a great deal to offer, and we want to ensure charities and funders play a fundamental part in any place-based work.

To learn more about place-based approaches,  join us at NPC’s annual conference. This year’s NPC Ignites will feature discussions about the social sector’s uneven geographic spread. Book your tickets here.
