I’m with John Popham in Birmingham reporting from the Your Square Mile National Summit, where more than 100 people are sharing experience from the local pilot projects that have been running this year around the UK. More on the pilots and YSM on their site.
As well as updates from the pilots, there are surgeries on fundraising, local ownership of community assets, setting up a community shop, and local online communities.
Your Square Mile is one of the major partners in the Big Lottery Fund’s People Powered Change, and I have reported past developments at socialreporter.com. I’ll be talking later in the day with chief executive Paul Twivy and others in the team to get an update on developments. Meanwhile you can follow #ysmbrum tweets here from the the event.
