Totally Locally is something special. It started out as a small idea in the North of England and has grown into a multi-award-winning worldwide movement. Groups of volunteers in towns and areas use the free kit (yes it really is free), following guidelines and using templates and a full event strategy, and use it to make their town a stronger, more vibrant & resilient place.  And all we ask in return in that if they come up with a new idea, it is shared with everyone else. There is now a network or Totally Locally Towns across the world, sharing ideas, working together and making a difference to their independent businesses. It works. It has been proven from Yorkshire to London to New Zealand. A new vibrancy, a spirit of cooperation, and a better High Street.

Totally Locally is a free, award-winning marketing kit that creates 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 groups of volunteers to collaborate, run high-end campaigns and events, and in turn help people to rediscover and fall in love with their high streets.

Totally Locally was created using techniques used by multi-national companies. The ones they use to connect with customers and increase brand awareness. That brand awareness, in this case, is your town!  And all this is free. Based on what we call ‘The Economics of Being Nice.
