The Peoples Powerhouse evolved from a groundswell of support from people and organisations who wanted to see more diverse voices leading the debate about what makes a North that works for all of us. We want to see people connected to prosperity in all its’ forms.
To do this, we aim to share the good work that’s already happening, to support and learn from what’s working, encourage innovations, as well as asking questions about who the ‘Northern Powerhouse’ is for and if its priorities are the right ones. We can bring about a step change in the debate; putting people and communities at the heart of investment and growth plans, not at the periphery.
This website is the hub of the community and enables you to share your best practice with like-minded organisations across the UK and to learn from the wider sector. Here you will find research and policy updates, evaluations and other learning resources as well as news of networking opportunities, coaching, mentoring, training and events all designed to enable organisations to learn, enhance practice, scale where appropriate and replicate your activities.
We hope you enjoy the site, benefit from its many elements and share what you know works. We welcome your feedback. Please contact us HERE
