Big Local

Gateshead

Big Local in Gateshead includes three neighbourhoods in Gateshead: Teams, Derwentwater and Racecourse.

Full of pride and potential, this Big Local area is building trust, involvement, energy and innovation – thanks to everything from community mapping to balloon modelling by the local vicar.

Since 2011 a lot of hard work has taken place to develop Big Local in Gateshead. This has involved the commitment and support of a number of people and organisations. We have worked with people locally to build up structures and have shaped and designed how Big Local Gateshead can understand local issues and then build ways to respond to them.
