Workers and Big Local

Many Big Local partnerships fund workers to support the delivery of Big Local.

It might be someone to help manage Big Local tasks, such as a project manager; someone to engage with the community, such as a development worker; or someone to give specialist advice and guidance, such as a personal debt advisor.

You will identify what needs doing when you put together or review your Big Local plan. You will then need to discuss with your locally trusted organisation who is to carry out this work and how.

If your partnership is not a legally constituted organisation, the likely options for your locally trusted organisation are to:

  • employ a worker (who might be a new or existing member of staff)
  • sub-contract a person or an organisation.
