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 place should be at the heart of the government’s levelling up agenda.

To find out more about NPC’s current work on place-based approaches, read this outline for our new Coordination in place project.

Our framework for place is a practical guide for funders, built on common characteristics we’ve identified from our consulting and think tank work.

We’re also building a network of social sector organisations to advocate for place-based approaches and develop innovative ideas. Contact us to join our pledge on place.
