Bringing everyone together: why diversity matters for Big Local

February 2012

Big Local is all about getting the widest possible mix of people involved to make a lasting, positive difference to their communities. 

This guide explains why this is so important. It also aims to show how diversity and equality are not pieces of jargon or political correctness, but can really help you get the best of your vision and plan for your area. 

The guide has been written for Local Trust by Living Space Project (formerly Capacity Global), a leading organisation that provides innovative advice and support in areas such as community action, policy development, equality and environmental justice.
