Community Wealth Building
About Community Wealth Building
Community Wealth Building focuses on how much money is held and reinvested in an area for the benefit of local communities. Stevenage Borough Council passed a motion on 29 January 2020 in support of Community Wealth Building. This included a commitment to launch a Cooperative and Inclusive Economy Charter.
Our approach to Community Wealth Building is underpinned by four key themes. These are procurement and social value, training and skills, growing the social economy sector, and tackling climate change. Making sure the economy works for everyone is at the heart of the approach.
Stevenage’s Cooperative and Inclusive Economy Charter
The Charter is part of the Council’s commitment to Community Wealth Building. Some examples of how we can all work together to bring about an inclusive economy include shopping locally, offering work placements and apprenticeships, and using local supply chains.
The Charter has a clear aim, which is to create a fairer society and a more resilient economy.
The Charter is for everyone, local residents, organisations and businesses.
