Local Motion

What is Local Motion?

Local Motion sees six funders joining forces in a commitment to support communities in a more radical, joined-up way. Together they’ve set out to use their collective resources, experience and strengths to maximise the `power of place` working with local partners to challenge existing norms and shape philanthropic practice.

Local Motion will focus on working with local partners who want to find solutions to the social and environmental issues on their doorstep. The project will focus on scoping and responding to the needs of local places, and defining project aims based on those findings. 


 We have come together 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


The Five Funders we are partnered with are:

City Bridge Trust

Lankelly Chase

Lloyds Bank Foundation

Paul Hamlyn Foundation

Tudor Trust

To help us progress this work, Kathleen Kelly has been appointed Director of Collaboration for Local Motion, Click here for the Press Release.
