Networks and learning

We bring together networks of community wealth builders to cultivate connections and grow a thriving movement with collaboration at its heart.

We also deliver a range of workshops, networking opportunities and events throughout the year to support individuals and organisations build community wealth in their places. Our networks comprise of politicians, business owners, employers, citizens, and anchor institutions, spanning different sectors and representing many places. We collaborate to generate new ways of doing, share learning and to inspire, challenge and support each other.

Anchor institution networks

CLES convenes networks of anchor institutions who are interested in working collectively to devise solutions to the challenges facing their local economies.
