Who we are
Localis is an independent think-tank, dedicated to issues related to local
government and localism. Since our formation we have produced influential
research on a variety of issues including the reform of public services, local
government finance, planning, and community empowerment. Our work has
directly influenced government policy and the wider policy debate.
We believe that power should be exercised as close as possible to the people
it serves. We are therefore dedicated to promoting a localist agenda and
challenging the existing centralisation of power and responsibility. We seek to
develop new ways of delivering local services that deliver better results at lower
cost, and involve local communities to a greater degree.
What we do
Localis aims to provide a link between local government and key figures in
business, academia, the third sector, parliament and the media. We aim to
influence the debate on localism, providing innovative and fresh thinking on
all areas that local government is concerned with. We have a broad events
programme, including roundtable discussions, publication launches and an
extensive party conference programme.
We also offer membership to both councils and corporate partners. Our
members play a central role in contributing to our work, both by feeding directly
into our research projects, and by attending and speaking at our public and
private events. We also provide a bespoke consultancy and support service firstname.lastname@example.org and businesses alike.
