The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government’s communities framework - ‘By deeds and their results: how we will strengthen our communities and nation’ - sets out 4 pillars that will shape our future work across government to strengthen communities, focused on supporting:
- trust, connectedness and local pride – where people feel a sense of pride and connectedness with their local area
- active citizenship and local control – where people are active in their communities and have more control over decisions about their local areas
- shared community spaces - where sustainably-run and inclusive spaces are available for people to come together, including parks, community centres, libraries, pubs, and high streets
- shared prosperity, with no community left behind - where strong communities help create a thriving and inclusive economy
Publishing this document marks the next step of an ongoing conversation with communities and partners that will shape the department’s future activity.
