Community Wealth Building through Anchor Institutions


Places across the UK are striving to find new ways of attracting wealth, enhancing economic growth and addressing poverty. For think tank CLES, the attraction of wealth is important; but of equal importance is understanding and harnessing existing wealth for the benefit of local economies and communities.

This publication reflects on work undertaken collaboratively in one locality (Preston).
