Support You

‘Breakthrough Basildon Borough’ may be an ‘independent’ think tank, but that absolutely does not mean it is ‘independent’ from the people that will shape it the most.

On the contrary, however, we want you to work with us, to create something that we can all be proud of. In line with the whole vision for the project, the Breakthrough Basildon Borough Commission recognises that in order to be successful, it needs to be inclusive. And why not be inclusive of those who are experts in the area?

To this extent, the ‘Breakthrough Basildon Borough’ Commission is asking residents, organisations, and groups to help shape this project, and pave the way forward.

Rather than allowing this commission to be one that comes and goes, or to be one that simply redoes work that has already been done, we want this project to have longevity, and we want it to be something that carries on far after its initial life span.

In order to achieve this, we will be hosting a range of workshops and engagement activities in the Basildon Borough, alongside launching a Call for Evidence. We know that the more information and expertise we have, the more informed our responses can be, and the more we can truly pave the way forward and inspire change.

To find out how to submit evidence or engage with the Commission and our activities, please visit us at:, follow us on twitter @breakthroughbas, or contact us at to find out more information.

We truly hope you will support the ‘Breakthrough Basildon Borough’ Commission by coming together and inspiring change, in order to make this breakthrough happen.
