A review of specialist support in Big Local

5 Apr 2018

A research paper looking at the role of specialist support in the delivery of Big Local.

In 2018, Local Trust piloted a new ‘support offer’, which involved six organisations providing specialist support to Big Local areas. Five of the six partner organisations were new to working with the Big Local programme.

This briefing is part of our Local Trust research papers series, originally shared internally with staff. It explores the process of rolling out this support offer, Big Local areas’ experience of working with these organisations and the role of Local Trust in managing the support offer.

A version of this paper was first published internally by Local Trust in 2018. It was published on the Local Trust website in April 2022.
