Centre for London

Centre for London is a politically independent, not-for-profit think tank and charity focused on the big challenges facing London. It aims to help London build on its long history as a centre of economic, social, and intellectual innovation and exchange, and create a fairer, more inclusive and sustainable city. Through its research and events, the Centre acts as a critical friend to London’s leaders and policymakers, promotes a wider understanding of the challenges facing London, and develops long-term, rigorous and radical solutions for the capital.

The Centre is politically non-aligned, and its interests range across economic, environmental, governmental and social issues.

Centre for London has been warmly welcomed by organisations and leaders across the capital, and has worked in partnership with the city’s business groups, charities and campaigners as well as national and London government.

It is led by Director Ben Rogers and Chair Liz Peace CBE, supported by a small core team, a network of Associates and a Board of Trustees. It looks for support from a mixture of private, voluntary and public sector funders and works collaboratively with its supporters, drawing on their experience and expertise.

Among other events, the Centre organises the annual London Conference. This day-long event, held at Southbank Centre, brings together London and international city leaders from a wide range of backgrounds, to develop fresh thinking on the future of London and other cities.
