Community-led regeneration

Community-led regeneration is at the heart of our regeneration strategy.

It is about people:

  • identifying issues and opportunities in their local area
  • deciding what to do about them
  • making positive changes in their communities

We support community-led regeneration that:

  • increases the number and strength of locally-controlled, enterprising community organisations
  • supports local organisations to take ownership of assets such as buildings or land
  • helps people to co-ordinate action and respond to challenges in areas where there are high levels of disadvantage
  • helps people identify and act on the priorities in their areas

We provide funding for community-led regeneration through our Empowering Communities Fund.
