Left: obligation data from the Local Loop Lancaster & Morecambe trial. As of the end of the trial in March 2023, there were about 30 registered businesses with more than 70 obligations submitted. MCS – which has suppliers in Lancaster – appears as a ‘super-connector’ at the centre. Right: the obligation loops present in the dataset.
Following on from the launch of Local Loop Merseyside and validation of its business model, we intend to replicate the system across the UK and have already had several expressions of interest from potential on-the-ground partners. If you would like to learn more about joining this first cohort of our social franchise, please contact us.
