At the Institute for Community Studies we have a vision of healthy, flourishing communities where no-one is disadvantaged simply because of where they live and where everyone has the opportunity to lead productive and fulfilling lives.

Our mission is to promote positive social, economic and environmental outcomes by better understanding how government and philanthropic interventions both influence and are influenced by the individuals, families and
businesses that make up our local communities.

If you share our vision and would like to discuss partnering with us or funding the Institute, please contact our Associate Director, Richard Harries for a conversation.
