Summer activities and new ideas

Local Trust newsletter

September 2016


This summer Big Local residents have been organising and commissioning a whole range of fantastic events, including loads of activities for children, young people and families. Take a tour of some highlights and get inspired!

In our latest newsletter you'll also find resources and events for everyone involved in Big Local. For the first time, we're offering events designed for locally trusted organisations and Big Local partnership members to attend together, which we hope will help you with delivering Big Local in your area.

You can also read about Dover Big Local, who are working with partners to put this coastal town (pictured below) firmly on the tourist map.

Finally, find out more about our new research project which has the potential to shape the future of community development in the UK. We've just announced the project plan and we look forward to involving a wide range of stakeholders with this work over the coming months.
