We can ‘level up’ by transforming commissioning

  • competition is a power tool for commissioners — useful but incredibly dangerous. It should be retired from being thought of as ‘the only tool’
  • we have a fragmented civil society, especially where it’s most needed
  • if you designed a system of funding and support to stop us getting the benefits, it would look like what we’ve got
  • gets re-spent locally more than any other money
  • goes *right* where it’s needed for ‘levelling up’
  • generates better communities
  • is the *only* way economic regeneration can work
  • creates extra benefits and results (£3.20 back within the first ten years)
  • is especially valuable if directed to minoritised communities
