Locality plans to grow membership six-fold in new five-year strategy

Locality wants to grow its members six-fold by 2020 and increase its national profile, according to its new five-year strategy released this week.

The national network of community-led organisations has said that it wants to grow its membership, which currently consists of around 500 members and an additional 200 associate members, to 3,000 members in the next five years.

By 2020 Locality also hopes to show significant influence in “at least five areas of policy which positively impacts” on the work of its members. This includes having a strong national profile as an organisation and membership network, measured through brand recognition, media coverage, e-news subscribers and digital interactions.

It also wants to have supported members to influence the landscape in local area, including strategic work with local authorities, and providing “campaigning and influencing tools, targeted support on specific priority campaigns and partnerships with other organisations”.
