LocalMotion is a joint initiative by six funders to support communities in a more radical, joined-up way.

Together we’ve set out to use our collective resources, experience and strengths to maximise the ‘power of place’ working with local partners to challenge existing norms and shape philanthropic practice.

The six places are:

  • Carmarthen
  • Enfield
  • Lincoln
  • Middlesbrough
  • Oldham
  • Torbay

The foundations came together with the six LocalMotion places around two key objectives:

  • To see if we can work more closely together to better use our collective resources, experience, and strengths, to make a long-term systemic change locally.
  • To explore how this way of working challenges current foundation practices more broadly.
