Hopeful Towns: National Policy Bringing together our research work and lessons from our pilot communities, as well as input and support from the Towns Leadership Network, we’ll create a clear picture of the change needed to foster resilience in British towns. Developing a range of key policy recommendations, we’ll work across political divides to advocate for the large-scale policy change that our communities need. We’ll increase the visibility of challenges faced by our towns by reaching national media, lobbying key national bodies and working with policy makers across regional and national government. The fight against hate must take place by fighting the sense of loss and powerlessness on which hatred feeds. It is through supporting, connecting and empowering communities that we can create real resilience and build strong, ambitious, inclusive towns.
