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.

THREE BIG TOTALLY LOCALLY IDEAS
£5 CAN CHANGE YOUR TOWN
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?
BUSINESSES WORKING TOGETHER
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.
