New Start is ‘articulating the alternative’ for places. Writing about a new local economics. Sharing ideas and solutions.

New Start was launched as the UK’s first regeneration magazine in February 1999. Since then it has told the stories of the people and projects creating social and economic change in local areas in the UK and internationally.

Between May 2015 and July 2016 New Start visited the 10 core cities of the UK to map local alternative economies, as part of the Friends Provident Foundation’s Building Resilient Economies programme.
