Civil Society Futures continues until the end of 2018. Please be part of it — and together let’s create lasting change. Below we’ve highlighted ways to take part:

1) Kickstart change in your community, group or organisation – and share your response


How can you put power in people’s hands where you are? Reflect on what you’re doing already, experiment, discuss, use our guide to hold a conversation event if you want.

Then let us know your response. How do you need to change? What ideas do you have for the future? What do you find most challenging? Email [email protected] with your response and we’ll publish it on this site.

We’re producing more materials to help guide you — express your interest here if you want to hear when they’re ready.


Are you struggling to have power over the things that matter to you? We will be doing more to involve communities from Newcastle to Peckham to Penzance, people who are disabled, LGBTQI+ and others — whoever you are, we want to hear your story too.


Have you already been involved in making ambitious change to put power in the hands of people and communities? We know there are great examples of change all around the country — we want to hear yours to help others see how change is possible. Are you already working on tackling one of the issues raised or have an idea you can pursue? Tell us what you’re doing so we can share it.
