The city initiatives are not limited to what Network members are doing but highlight innovative work taking place across the UK. We aim to keep these resources as up to date as possible despite the inherent difficulties of keeping track of broken links. We welcome contributions from members. If you would like to highlight a successful project or useful resource do let us know, firstname.lastname@example.org
