Social Fabric

Repairing the ties that bind communities together

A landmark programme to understand the changing nature of community in different parts of the UK, and explore ways to repair the social fabric of different places in meaningful and practical ways. Our Social Fabric programme is currently supported by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, Shelter and Power to Change.
