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 programmes to support CLF residents improve their skills and support them in finding work e.g. JETS and  Working Capital.

CLF also has a number of  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).
