Glad you clicked through but you’ll need to come back on Wednesday 29 June to find out about We Work. Trust us, there’s going to be some amazing stories showing how PlaceShapers up and down the country change people’s lives...
PlaceShapers engage on Localism, says minister.
A new report shows how PlaceShapers are at the spearhead of delivering localism to transform communities, lives and opportunities.<br /><br />Containing 16 inspirational case studies, 'Localism that works' report was launched on 7 December 2011 at a Westminster reception attended by the Rt Hon Greg Clark MP, Minister for Decentralisation and Cities.
The case studies cover an amazing range of innovative projects and activities - from a partnership with a professional basketball team to reduce youth crime, to growing and eating healthy food, support for older people and running a factory to manufacture low carbon homes. The common thread running through all the projects is how housing associations bring together and unlock resources from all kinds of groups and organisations to benefit local communities.
In his introduction, the Rt Hon Greg Clark MP, Minister for Decentralisation and Cities says: "This report is a vivid illustration of how PlaceShapers engage with the future of their estates and communities. Across the country they have helped people return to work, reduce crime, create jobs and transform local neighbourhoods. These 16 case studies are a testament to what local initiative and local innovation can do for local communities. This is decentralisation that works - people taking control of their lives."

Glad to see this response to the vile leaflet and that it's not from the parish council.
