We deliver community and economic development

In a continuously challenging economic and policy environment, Paul Bragman Community & Economic Regeneration Consultants Ltd. offers a range of organisational management, economic and community development services to assist organisations to sustain their activity.

Established in 2002, we have worked with over 80 housing associations, local authorities, community and voluntary organisations, and non-governmental organisations in the UKAsia, South America and Africa. 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.

Paul is an NCVO Approved Consultant, a member of the Empowered Communities in the 2020’s National Steering Group, a Design Council Built Environment Expert, and a Big Local Rep for Local Trust in three neighbourhoods. 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.

Paul is one of four directors who have set up Community Collective to build collaborative work and agendas. The other directors are Kim Donahue, Sian Penner and Wendy Sugarman.
