Mission and Purpose

Urban Forum is a national charity and a membership organisation that supports communities to have a greater say over decisions that affect them. They work with their members to influence government policy and to support them to influence decision-making locally. By gathering evidence and feedback from their members UF acts as a bridge between policy-makers and community groups operating on the ground.

Urban Forum has 250 members, mostly from local community groups from across England, although they also have associate members from the private and public sector and academia.

From 2012 Urban Forum has been transforming its operational model into a more devloved volunteer led organisation, due to a reduction in funding from central government and trusts and foundations.
