Community Links pioneers new ideas and new ways of working locally and shares the learning nationally with practitioners and policy makers. Our evidence-based research and policy; campaigning, events, consultancy, and publications all share our experience from the ground up. As a result, we are recognised as national leaders in regeneration and social policy.
We are currently lobbying government on the details of the welfare reform bill and the development of the Work Programme (for which Community Links is a sub-contractor), as well campaigning to save funding for advice work, nationally and in Newham. This section includes links to our latest policy publications and details of the campaigns.
Answering the question "how do we build a society that prevents problems from arising rather than dealing with their consequences?" The Early Action Taskforce, convened by Community Links and chaired by David Robinson, has launched its first report in the House of Lords. Visit our dedicated Early Action pages.
We have been publishing books, policy and research papers, ideas annuals, and much more over many years. Most are available to download or to buy in hard copy. Read more.
Community Links shares its considerable grassroots experience with other organisations. Our training and consultancy services cover community research, leadership, organisational development, and more. Our experienced practitioners are dealing with these issues every day - we can show you how, because we do.
