Why Local United?
Local United was founded with support from NESTA by a group of social entrepreneurs based on these beliefs:
- The rapid development of Social Ventures can directly deliver sustainability at a pace and scale commensurate with the problems (such as peak oil and climate change) that those Social Ventures seek to address.
- Sustainability can become a vibrant ‘must-have’ for a significant proportion of the UK’s population
- Ordinary people need to be given easy ways of keeping their money in their local economies as an alternative to big corporate organisations extracting profits and opportunities away from communities.
