In June the Prime Minister wrote to Danny Kruger MP to consult with organisations and public services across the place to develop proposals on the role they can play in the government’s levelling up agenda. In particular looking at how civil society can support public services more effectively and the opportunities data and technology to enhance collaboration across organisations in the public, private and community sector.
On 24 September Danny Kruger, MP for Devizes delivered his report Levelling up our communities: proposals for a new social covenant and provided a comprehensive vision that empowers and supports people to play an active role in their neighborhoods.

Councils with the right digital infrastructure in place have been able to act as the broker and convener across the community, cutting across boundaries to solve common challenges and improve outcomes for the people and place. As place shapers local public services and community groups together with their tech partners have a critical role to play in levelling up our economy so this is a very timely report.
