Who We Are

We are a partnership of experienced place-based change makers who are working together through a charitable venture.  Our purpose is to establish a coalition of practitioners who learn together and share their knowhow openly and generously with others to build the quality of UK place-based change practice.  


Place Matters is a backbone organisation whose role is to convene practitioners through communities of practice, learning events and to enable help capture and share knowhow, so practitioners can build on the shoulders of others more readily.  We will work with those starting on the journey of change through our incubator programme and support those already delivering change through peer-led communities of practice.  We will capture learning and make it accessible through learning events and our online platform. 


We will work with funders and commissioners to share the collective knowledge and evidence of impact of practitioners to build support.  

Join our community of place-based change makers to take part in the programme of learning events, receive information about the knowledge and insight we create and share and to be part of a network of people committed to delivering community-led change.
