We started this journey with three beliefs: first, that London needs a vibrant civil society to prosper; second, that in order to achieve a strong and vibrant civil society, just as any other sector in London, civil society needs access to appropriate business, technical and enterprise support, as well as a ‘voice’ within the ongoing debate about London, its governance and the issues it faces; and third that the challenges presented by the current economic situation also presented opportunities to review and re-think how that support is provided to civil society in London.  A review was carried out in 2015 with a final report, The Way Ahead, launched in April 2016.
