Big Local partnerships

A Big Local partnership is a group of at least eight people who guide the overall direction of Big Local in your area.

The majority (at least 51%) of partnership members are people who live within your Big Local area. The partnership is responsible for agreeing a shared vision based on the priorities of their community, then creating the Big Local plan, overseeing its delivery, collecting evidence to show how the plan is progressing, and reviewing the plan and partnership to make sure they are working in the best way possible for community benefit.
