Collaboration is one of our core values, and at the heart of how we work with communities, clients and partners to support our mission.

We are proud to collaborate across sectors, disciplines and places, and with individuals, organisations and networks who share our commitment to supporting the development of great places, shaped by local people.

Strategic Partner: Design Group at The Open University

In 2013, we established a strategic partnership with the Design Group to innovate, support and promote community-led, participatory and co-design practice, for the benefit of better places for all.
