About this event

Note: This London date is now full. There are a couple of places left at the same event in Sheffield on 7 December.

These events are an opportunity for Big Local partnerships and locally trusted organisations in Big Local areas to come together to network with each other and share your learning and experiences, as well as receive support and guidance to carry out your role. Some of the workshops include speakers from Big Local partnerships and locally trusted organisations.

These events are for you if you work a locally trusted organisation (you might be the person who manages the grant or someone who is employed by the locally trusted organisation) or if you are a member of a Big Local partnership. The aim of the events is for you to attend together. We are offering a choice of workshops so you can tailor the day to suit your needs and interests.
