Breaking Barriers Innovations is an independent research programme to inform the radical improvement of public services using locality-driven, joined-up approaches as opposed to top-down driven blueprints.

We work to help shape a new core discipline in UK public services – that of place-based commissioning. Place-based or locality commissioners such as Metro Mayors, Police and Crime Commissioners and NHS STP leads are now playing a pivotal role that requires them to think and operate outside their normal silos such as health, criminal justice and local government and rebuild services around place, people and the local economy.
