Centre for London
Centre for London is a new politically independent, not-for-profit think tank focused on the big challenges facing London. It aims to help London build on its long history as a centre of economic, social, and intellectual innovation and exchange, and create a fairer, more inclusive and sustainable city. Through its research and events, the Centre acts as a critical friend to London’s leaders and policymakers, promotes a wider understanding of the challenges facing London, and develops long-term, rigorous and radical solutions for the capital.
The Centre is politically non-aligned, and its interests range across economic, environmental, governmental and social issues.
Centre for London was incubated by Demos, before becoming independent in January 2013. It has been warmly welcomed by organisations and leaders across the capital, and has worked in partnership with the city’s business groups, charities, campaign organisations and national and London government.
It is led by Director Ben Rogers and Chair Liz Meek, supported by a small core team, a network of Associates and a Board of Trustees. It looks for support from a mixture of private, voluntary and public sector funders and works collaboratively with its supporters, drawing on their experience and expertise.
