About Localmotion

LocalMotion is a collaboration of six funders who would like to play their part in facilitating systemic, positive change in six locations facing economic, environmental or social challenges. The six funders are: Lloyds Bank Foundation, Esmee Fairbairn Foundation, Paul Hamlyn Foundation, Lankelly Chase Foundation, Tudor Trust, and City Bridge Trust.

 

Our goal is “To use our collective experience and resources to support local people to address social, environmental and economic priorities selected and driven locally and derive as much learning as possible from that process”

 

As six funders we have been investing and supporting charities to survive and adapt for many years. When looking ahead to the next decade, however, we recognised that a new approach to collaboration is needed that can go further and be bolder than our individual efforts. We are keen to understand together with six places how best we might achieve that.

How will LocalMotion work?

LocalMotion aims to be inspired by these six local communities. We want to work together with them to find collective solutions to local social, environmental, and economic challenges through local cross-sector collaboration with the community, civil society, public bodies, businesses and funders.

 

We hope that LocalMotion will help create the space and other conditions to identify what is possible, build on the strengths that already exist locally and collaborate to agree together what is needed to change things for the better.

 

We want to learn how to collaborate with local areas more effectively. For us this is about shared action and impact. We hope It is about working together to develop and test out radical shared solutions to common challenges.

Long-term plan for Torbay

LocalMotion is a long-term programme, over ten years. After two years of developing their ways of working and learning about systems change, each LocalMotion place submitted draft plans for the following eight years. These plans follow a set template that explores our long-term ambitious dream, what we’ve been doing so far, what we’re learning, where this is taking us, what’s been difficult and where we’ve grown, what the legacy is of this work, where there have been changes in power and decision-making, and what’s needed to distribute power further.

 

The final version of those plans are now available to view below.
