Civil Exchange is an independent think tank that exists to help strengthen civil society and help government and civil society work better together.  It acts as a “link tank,” connecting with other organisations and individuals with expertise and knowledge to exchange ideas and find new solutions.

To this end, Civil Exchange hosts a leadership network, co-founded by its Director, Caroline Slocock, and Steve Wyler, called A Better Way, linking up leaders across different sectors who want to share ideas and inspiration about how they and others can improve services, build stronger communities and create a fairer society.  Its thinking is brought together in A Call to Action for A Better Way published in 2019, Time for a Change, published in 2021, and Building a Bigger We in May 2022.  If you’d like to join the network, details are here.

Civil Exchange has been working with the Early Action Task Force on how to promote greater investment in early action and social infrastructure and on the power of Deep Value relationships in services and communities.  The most recent publications are Making a Good Place: how to invest in social infrastructure  and Why don’t we invest in early action?
