About this event

Leaders are those who inspire, motivate and support others, and at Local Trust we recognise that leaders come in many guises, not just those “at the top” or in “formal positions of power”. Leaders are crucial to the success of Big Local, so Local Trust is developing a programme to support community leaders – in all their forms – to enhance the legacy of Big Local and ensure that all areas foster community leaders to bring about change in years to come.

We know the term community leadership can mean different things to different people, so in early autumn we will be holding an event to find out what community leadership means to you, and design a programme to support new and emerging community leaders in Big Local areas. The event will also include skills workshops that will help participants become more effective leaders, and is a chance to meet other Big Local volunteers interested in this topic.
