Our mission is to help local leaders make better neighbourhoods and influence government, funders and corporates to make that easier.
The Jericho Road is a two-way steet linking practice and policy, neighbourhood and national perspectives, to unlock the hidden resources for local transformation
We care, viscerally, about neighbourhoods – the way some people care about ‘families’. We believe in solidarity, tolerance, openness and, most of all, the power (and hard work) of collective action.
Our values are:
- Compassion – we feel for each other, not for charity but for solidarity
- Equity – no decisions about us without us. ‘Exalt the valleys and lower the mountains’ so that people are able to make change on their own terms.
- Integrity – approach challenges with good faith, saying what we mean and meaning what we say.
- Courage – failure is the development cost for the next success, so have a go anyway!
Jericho Road is led by Jess Steele who has 25 years experience of working intensively with local neighbourhoods and at national level to support neighbourhood development.
