Coastal Housing Group: developing the Foundational Economy in South Wales (Renewal 27.2, Summer 2019)
Author: Debbie Green
In the context of austerity and increasing in-work poverty, it is increasingly important for anchor institutions to contribute to building stronger economies and communities. Coastal Housing Group, as an important anchor and intermediary organisation in South Wales, has turned to the Foundational Economy approach in its work in Morriston, Swansea, to provide a framework to do this. In doing so, lessons can be learnt about rethinking economic interventions from the bottom up and, in turn, the implications this has for government policy and¬†practice.
