Sunderland City Council asked the RSA to evaluate its Community Leadership Programme (CLP). The Council has decided that it wants to simultaneously turn itself into a platform for local social and economic productivity and at the same time reinvigorate the role of local councillors as community leaders. This report provides a social productivity analysis of the Council's CLP, highlighting the lessons it can teach localities across the UK and how the Council could further strengthen the CLP through a socially productive approach to local democratic politics and public services.
