Hello!          Welcome to Neighbourhood Economics

Neighbourhood Economics is the ‘go to’ destination for large companies and institutions seeking to engage more effectively with local communities across the UK.

We are passionate about local communities as a fundamental foundation for individual and collective well-being. We long to see every local community empowered to transform itself and shape its own future.  We believe that all local communities can be better, more sustainable places to live for all residents.

Understanding that sustainable transformation requires long-term investment, we work with corporate partners and key stakeholders to empower change within communities from ‘the bottom up’.  In the process, our aim is to rebalance the relationship between businesses and the communities they serve, delivering positive ‘win/win’ impacts for all concerned.

We are committed to leading and supporting this fundamental transformation through progressive innovation which challenges convention and changes behaviour.
