Helping combined authorities to build more inclusive local economies

The New Economics Foundation (NEF), the Centre for Local Economic Strategies (CLES), Co-operatives UK and the Centre for Thriving Places (CTP) have created the Reclaiming Our Regional Economies (RORE) programme. RORE will operate until 2028, alongside three pilot combined authority areas, to bring communities together with political and institutional leaders to test ideas that help to re-wire and reform their economies, so that they deliver good lives now and for generations to come.

In the first year of our work on RORE we have been able to observe first-hand the triumphs and challenges being faced by combined authorities, communities and their partners. You can download here a summary of our observations, and of why devolution is necessary and valuable.
