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 social activists across different sectors who want to share ideas and inspiration about how to improve services and build stronger communities.  Its thinking is brought together in Insights for A Better Way, and the network is currently working on a A Call to Action to be published later this year.

Civil Exchange is currently working with the Early Action Task Force on how to promote greater investment in social infrastructure.
