Turnaround Towns UK celebrates nine towns from England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland who are working to improve their community wellbeing.

The report highlights key factors in the journeys of these places, illustrating the importance of towns recognising their existing assets, as well as the importance of an enabling environment and external support.

This is an opportune time to be looking at what works to support innovative policy and practice for towns. Towns face challenges in being represented in policy and gaining access to appropriate development funding. The question is how governments at all levels and funders can support towns in this time of change to make the most of upcoming opportunities.
