As a genuinely cross-party think-tank, Demos delivers a full programme of incisive and broad-ranging events across the party conferences every year, and 2015 will be no exception.
We are delighted to invite you to the launch of Community Chest, a Demos report exploring new models of local and regional banking, supported by the Friends Provident Foundation.

Date and Time
Tuesday 13 October, 1300-1430
It is becoming increasingly clear that there are stark geographical imbalances in Britain's economic performance - particularly for small and medium-sized businesses. Community Chest is a new Demos report that considers the role that local banking might play in addressing these issues.
In particular, this event will explore the potential for local and regional banks to function on a 'dual bottom line' - promoting local economies, while also turning a profit. We would be delighted to hear your views on this topic and hope you will be able to join us.view details
