Why partner with us?

Partnerships are a vital part of our work to help the UK’s largest cities and towns improve their economies and the opportunities they offer to people. We actively look to partner with like-minded organisations to help us realise our goals by:

  • Undertaking original research and analysis
  • Offering presentations, workshops and insight
  • Facilitating events, including public debates and policy roundtables

Partnering with us offers the opportunity to be associated with our work. Centre for Cities acknowledges its partners through:

  • Corporate brand exposure in published collateral
  • Dissemination of publications in national and local press and media campaigns
  • Co-branded events


Here are some of our recent partners. We are grateful for their support for events, research and longer-term partnerships.
