Totally Locally is about creating strong, vibrant towns and sustainable local economies.

Independent businesses and shops are the bedrock of our communities, and when they thrive they create real jobs, cohesive towns and strong economies. Totally Locally helps people to rediscover and fall in love with their high streets.

Many of our projects are award winning, and our Town Kit is used by groups all over the world making their towns better places to live and work.

Who We Are?

We are a small group of marketeers, designers, brand experts, consultants and activists. We have huge experience in creating events, building campaigns, creating brands and introducing schemes that have big social and economic impact in small towns. We love our work.

What We Do

We create clever campaigns and events that really engage with people. We train up people so that the campaigns are sustainable after we’ve left. We foster pride in the places that people live, work and visit. We change towns!

Our Vision

Our vision is to expand the network of Totally Locally Towns across the world. We forsee new ways of working, ideas swapping and collaboration for businesses and organisations to create thriving local economies. We want to future-proof local supply chains, and to help everyone to become aware how spending a little bit of their money “Totally Locally” can have a huge impact on local jobs, business, economies and life.




or…. How to go Totally Locally if you’re a Shopper

Really, it is that simple! Just switch £5 or $5 or €5 of your weekly shopping from chainstores, supermarkets or online to an independent business in your town. Change where you buy your lunch time sandwich,where you buy your coffee, shop with the independent butcher, grocer or book shop, it is that simple. You may ask how this makes a difference?



or…. Getting Businesses to Support Each Other

Independent businesses use on average (we’ve found) 8 local suppliers. When a town takes on Totally Locally this usually doubles to an average of about 16. This is due to them understanding the importance of supporting each other. So you, by supporting a business that supports lots of other local businesses, are supporting many others too.

    Pop-up Shops

    We’ve done some amazing Pop Up shops from small to huge! Normal ones can cause disruption and competition with local businesses – ours don’t. In fact we’ve worked out how to enhance exisiting busineses, create more of a market for everyone, build local supply chains and incubate new businesses onto the High Street with them. Exciting!
