Government unveils vision for building stronger communities

31st July 2019

Former Communities Secretary Rt Hon. James Brokenshire this week laid out the government’s vision for building a stronger sense of belonging and shared prosperity within local communities.

The new Community Framework: ‘By deeds and their results: how we will strengthen our communities and nation’, published today, sets out how the government will work with local and national partners such as businesses, faith institutions, local authorities and volunteer groups to help build stronger, more empowered and integrated communities across England.

The framework commits to:

  • Holding a national conversation with communities across England after Brexit, about their view of who we are as a nation, their vision for the future of their community and our country, and what local and national government can do to support their communities to thrive.
  • Establishing a series of Civic Deal pilots to test the principles of this Framework in local areas, by putting communities more in control of decisions and by strengthening local partnerships and civic infrastructure.
  • Publishing a Communities White Paper to renew the government’s focus on building stronger communities across England.
