People involved in each of the 150 Big Local areas can see first hand what they have achieved. Local Trust wants to document, understand and share these achievements and learning from across the Big Local programme. To ensure we get the most learning from this radical and unique programme, and provide useful support and guidance to Big Local areas, we are reaching out to you to help us develop our new research strategy.

Power in our Hands details the findings from our last research strategy but there is still so much to learn and understand about the programme. The research team has just started to develop a new research strategy that will evidence the recently published Local Trust strategy. Sign up for this short session to contribute to our new strategy and help shape our research to the end of the programme.

What will the session cover?

The session will last an hour and start with a brief introduction to the research team’s work and findings from our last research strategy. There will then be 45 minutes where you’ll have the opportunity to think individually and collectively about what you want to learn from the Big Local programme.

Who is this session for?

This session is for anyone that wants to contribute to what Local Trust will seek to learn over the final five years of the programme. You don’t need research experience or know about the ins and outs of what the research team at Local Trust does to be able to attend.

This event is open to Big Local partnership members, workers and reps.
