• Community Wealth Building Centre of Excellence (CfX)

    Welcome to the home of the community wealth building movement in the UK. The CfX was established by CLES to support practitioners in creating more inclusive local economies.

Community wealth building is a powerful corrective to an economic model that has left too many people worse off. The CfX provides the resources that are needed to help scale and amplify progressive community wealth building practice.

— Tom Lloyd Goodwin, Director of the CfX
