The project, although still in its infancy, is innovative and potentially transformational. It means that Leeds is engaged in doing more for the same. It is using its corporate resources in more innovative ways to bring about more public good.
The research sought to better understand how CSR (a term commonly associated with the private-sector) was being translated and adopted within a large local authority. In so doing the research concerned itself with two primary themes:
- Changing Lives: CSR projects supported by Leeds City Council and,
- The Story: An insight into the people who are making it happen.
The outputs of the research which include a blog, twitter feed, a series of video interviews and written reports can be accessed here or if you prefer the mashups below will give you a flavour of the activity being undertaking at Leeds City Council.
