The Government is committed to shifting power and influence down towards local communities and individuals. However, local groups who want to be proactive often come across barriers that only central government can lift. Those barriers might take the form of rules and regulations, time-consuming bureaucracy, or quite simply the way central government departments work. We want this to change.
This is where the new Barrier Busting website comes into play: If you need help to get things done for your community and you’ve exhausted all avenues at a local level then you can use the website to contact the barrier busting team and seek specialist advice.
