CLES named one of the North’s Top 50

CLES, the UK’s leading progressive economics think and do tank for people and place, based in Manchester, has been selected as one of the top fifty most socially valuable organisations in the north of England by this year’s Hannah Directory.

Unlike most awards, which only cover one field, Hannah Directory looks for outstanding contributions in any activity that is for the common good of place it happens in. CLES joins artists, musicians, community groups, digital technology companies, a music festival and a volunteer-run cinema in the fifth edition of the directory, which celebrates people and organisations living and working in places in England’s north.
