What is Big Local - Local Trust?

Big Local is an exciting opportunity for residents in 150 areas around England to use at least £1 million each to make a massive and lasting, positive difference to their communities.

Big Local brings together all the local talents, ambitions, skills and energy from individuals, groups and organisations who want to make their area an even better place to live.

Big Local is funded by the Big Lottery Fund and managed by Local Trust. Nationally they work with a range of partners to deliver Big Local, building on the skills and experiences of others to provide expert advice and support for residents.

Barnfield Big Local was created in 2011 by the formation of a Partnership to guide the project.

What is the Barnfield Big Local Partnership? 

The Barnfield Big Local Partnership is a steering group made up of residents and local organisations that bring knowledge and skills relevant to the aims of the Big Local project. It is made up of a minimum of 51% residents of the Big Local area.

Other partners currently include the Royal Borough of Greenwich, the residents group Friends of Barnfield, the Local Trusted Organisation GCDA, who manage the staffing and funds on behalf of the Partnership, and members of the Greenwich Inclusion Project and local Credit Union, among others.

The Partnership also has a Big Local Representative who provides advice, and also employs two part time staff.
