This framework sets out Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government (MHCLG’s) vision for stronger communities, why communities matter, what strong communities look like, and what government and partners can do to support their creation.
It sets out 4 pillars that it thinks will shape the future work across government to strengthen communities, focused on supporting:
- trust, connectedness and local pride – where people feel a sense of pride and connectedness with their local area
- active citizenship and local control – where people are active in their communities and have more control over decisions about their local areas
- shared community spaces - where sustainably-run and inclusive spaces are available for people to come together, including parks, community centres, libraries, pubs, and high streets
- shared prosperity, with no community left behind – where strong communities help create a thriving and inclusive economy
