About Localis

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.

Our philosophy

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 for

info@localis.org.uks and businesses alike.
