Welcome to the CLS Hub

This Support and Learning Hub is where local communities funded through the Big Lottery Fund’s Communities Living Sustainably programme can share information about their projects, ask each other questions and talk about progress.

Here is the place to share what’s working well and access help and support from the Groundwork UK Learning Partnership. We will also use this hub to share the learning that communities are gathering from this programme.
