Place-based working

Corra Foundation understands that the challenges facing communities are complex and dynamic, and that traditional grantmaking alone will not support communities to address these issues.

In response to this, and following an extensive period of research and development, the People in Place programme was launched in 2014.

People in Place uses innovative place-based approaches to help people and communities to create positive change.

People in Place

Initially focussed on getting alongside communities that traditional grant making was not reaching, the scope and scale of the programme has grown to encompass three project strands

Our Partners

Collaboration is at the heart of good place based working and underpins the People in Place programme.  Other funders – including The Tudor Trust and Lankelly Chase – have an equal investment in the Getting Alongside Communities programme and a shared interest in a new approach to tackling deep-rooted social challenges.
