The Big Local initiative in Broad Green aims to strengthen and enhance the area through the assets, strengths and connections of local people who live and work here. The initiative will see local citizens building on their talents and aspirations identifying and acting on their own passions and concerns to make their area even an better place to live and work.
This sustainable approach to long-term issues will ensure that Broad Green becomes an even better places to live through the following outcomes:
- Communities will be better able to identify local needs and take action in response to them;
- People will have increased skills and confidence so that they can continue to identify and respond to local needs in future;
- The community will make a difference to the needs it prioritises;
- People will feel that their area is an even better place to live
We have had a tremendous undertaking of activities and achievements in the last 5 years including opening the Big Local Broad Green Community Hub on Keeley Road.
In addition, in the past 5 years we awarded small grants to over 70 local projects addressing local and national issues.
Through our work Broad Green will have increased capacity within the local community to develop and run activities for local people from the Broad Green Hub in Keeley Road.
Big Local Broad Green will leave an experienced, confident group of residents and partner organisations with the capacity to identify and respond to the needs of the area and advocate with all stakeholders on its behalf, particularly for vulnerable people.
