What We Do


The core purpose of Central London Forward (CLF) is to provide a collective voice for Central London Forward’s member boroughs and their citizens.

To do so, the work we do for our membership involves:

  • Economic and social research
  • Strategic policy advice
  • Policy design and development

At present, CLF’s membership have agreed that the core collective policy concerns of the Central London boroughs centre around:

  • Helping Central London residents move back into work
  • Improving the skill set of Central London Residents
  • Improving the supply of new homes in Central London

As well as providing strategic policy advice and advocacy, Central London Forward is responsible for commissioning and managing a number of programmes to support CLF residents improve their skills and support them in finding work, such as Enterprise Advisors and Working Capital.

CLF also has a number of new major programmes, including an initiative to support Central Londoner’s back into work (Central London Works), and a scheme to help residents access the skills and the opportunities for a career in the construction sector (Construction Careers).
