About Us

Urban Forum is an independent, national membership charity that supports communities in having a better say over the decisions affecting them. We work with and through our members to influence government policy and support them to have a stronger community influence on decision-making in their areas. We receive no funding from government to support our work, which helps us maintain our independence and objectivity.


We have over 900 members, mostly from local community groups from across England, although we also have associate members from the private such as start up sell iphone 7 and public sector and academia.
