Our Consultancy provides community and economic development services as an effective way to tackle inequality, achieve social justice and deliver tangible change to local communities.

We work with a wide network of consultants – ensuring that each project team is designed specifically to respond to the needs of the brief.

He is also an Associate Consultant with Campbell Tickell. Paul is also Chair of the board of trustees of BANG, a Brent based charity that supports young people and families to build confidence, self-esteem and skills through a range of activities/programmes.


Community Collective

Community and Economic Regen is proud to support and advocate for highlighting and sharing good practice, and as such has joined a collective partnership with others to extend the conversation and knowledge base. We believe that working together gives strength and increased knowledge and practice.

CB1 Community

We work with stakeholders on the CB1 Estate in Cambridge both in the initial facilitation of workshops for stakeholders and now in continuing community engagement work on the mixed use estate

Community Hubs

We have worked with various partners on community centres including the Jain centre to develop a business plan and Genesis Housing Association on the Factory Quarter estate near White City. On Factory Quarter, we carried out a piece of research to see if residents would like a community hub in an unused unit in the development. We have also worked with Optivo Housing Association and a community steering group in conducting community research and producing a business plan on a potential new community Hub in Faversham, Kent.

Chalkhill Community Centre

Paul has worked with Chalkhill community centre, supporting them through a period of change. He has helped them to gain new trustees, develop their processes and further their business plan.

Stockwell Hall of Fame

We worked with Network Homes to carry out a consultation on Stockwell Hall of Fame, an internationally recognised graffiti wall in a Stockwell Estate. We brought together local residents, partners and users of the space to ensure that Stockwell Hall of Fame is improved and made practical recommendations about potential changes to the space.
