North East Local Infrastructure Organisations - Overview


In June 2017, VONNE published this overview of North East Local Infrastructure Organisations (LIOs) to be presented to the North East Funders Network mapping how the landscape of local infrastructure organisations has changed beyond recognition over recent years. For example in County Durham only two of the original seven local infrastructure organisations remain and both Gateshead and Darlington have recently seen the closure of their respective long standing LIOs.

The intention of the report is to ensure that funders and other multi-sector partners are up to date on what the picture looks like now for local infrastructure services in the North East; to bust some of the myths about the demise of local infrastructure support.
