SP and RE:generate are entering into a strategic partnership to develop collaborative projects and scale the impact of RE:generate’s model of community animation. RE:generate aims to relieve poverty by encouraging local people to take action and participate in public life; develop local and enterprising solutions to problems; wake up to their potential to make change happen in their lives, neighbourhoods and communities; and release the latent skills, talents and other assets that lie dormant in communities. RE:generate will be a key partner in the national community organisers programme funded by the Office of Civil Society and led by Locality.

SP and RE:generate will combine their skills and experience to replicate and scale RE:generate’s Root Solutions and Training for Transformation Programmes across the UK. Our shared goal is to build a sustainable social business platform that can maximise the social impact in communities across the country.

Separately, Patrick Shine, a Partner at SP, is playing a leading local role in the pioneering “Esher Community Fund” project led by Community Foundation for Surrey. This initiative explores ways to tackle hidden pockets of deprivation common in the prosperous South East region. The project has been selected as one of 16 finalists in NESTA’s Neighbourhood Challenge. RE:generate has also been recognised in the same programme, with RE:congregate, a Newark based project centred on a Catholic church in the city centre. For more information, please click here
