Community Wealth Building

For the last four years Lewes District Council has embraced a community wealth building approach to its work. This is about ensuring that local people and the local economy are placed at the centre of how the council operates, and how we work with our partners. We will continue to work with key local institutions; our county council, local businesses, police and NHS partners (anchor institutions) to change procurement practices to focus on local providers where possible. We aim to provide more local employment through all of our activities. We will support the development of social enterprises and identify where additional social value can be achieved in local communities.

You can find more information about community wealth building at the Centre for Local Economic Strategy website.
