The CREATE Consortium launched the Community Allowance campaign in May 2008 to enable community organisations to pay people to do work that strengthens their neighbourhood without it affecting any of their benefits.
The (UK) consortium is made up of representatives from
- British Urban Regeneration Association
- Community Links
- Development Trusts Association
- National Community Forum
- Slivers of Time.
- www.communityallowance.org, information about the Community Allowance proposal along stories of people and organisations that have been adversely affected by the benefits regulations.
