Locality’s Annual Convention is two days of inspirational learning, connecting and networking with our diverse and interactive schedule of sessions, talks and workshops.


Good Finance will be joining hundreds of inspiring members, partners and people working in the community, voluntary and social enterprise sectors for the biggest community sector event of the year – as we look at how we can put communities back in control.

Here’s why you have to be there

Get connected: meet people who believe in the power of community and swap stories and ideas.

Be inspired: hear from inspiring leaders, thinkers and doers from the UK and around the world who are taking back control in their communities.

Gain insight, skills & ideas: join interactive sessions where you’ll walk away with new ideas, skills and practical tools.

Influence the debate: join conversations with leading policy makers and have your say on Locality’s future work.


Keynote speakers confirmed so far:

  • Matt Leach, CEO of Local Trust
  • Julia Unwin, former CEO of The Joseph Rowntree Foundation


From getting your voice heard and accessing funding, to learning from communities across the world, Locality Convention ’17 is packed full of networking opportunities, practical workshops, visits to amazing Manchester community organisations and enterprises, inspiring talks and more!
