Connecting local communities to opportunity
Among rising poverty and inequality, cost of living crises and environmental challenges, good work can be a driver for positive social change in our communities.
Meanwhile for employers, rising skills shortages and DEI priorities are creating a growing desire to look local for diverse talent. We help to connect the dots.
We support local authorities, Housing Associations, NHS Trusts and other anchor institutions to hire local, unlock meaningful social value from their supply chains, and help connect residents to support and opportunities from a network of employers.
We partner with public sector organisations to understand their key priorities and support needs, and then work with and through local community partners to connect residents to resources, support, opportunities and good work from employers around them.

Impact measurement and reporting
Impact on Urban Health x Disability Employment
We partnered with Impact on Urban Health, the largest place-based foundation in Europe. Together we delivered action-oriented research, consultation and insight to understand the barriers to good work faced by jobseekers with long term conditions in Lambeth and Southwark.
The disability employment gap has remained stubbornly high in recent decades. Our research aimed to understand the barriers faced by jobseekers and employers, and co-design solutions and opportunities to overcome these barriers.
The process involved consultations with dozens of employers and hundreds of jobseekers with disabilities and long term conditions, as well as engagement with local community organisations. The recommendations were rooted in the key insights found - especially the power of peer networks and support, the need for improvement in employer processes, and the role the right tech can play in connecting two sides of the market. These insights help to inform our approaches to inclusive employment and good work.
