1585729Allenton Big Local is into its third year of funding, and our second Big Local plan has been approved by Local Trust. We have agreed activities and spend up until March 2019 – but that doesn’t mean that we aren’t open to developing new activities driven by emerging trends and changes in our community.

Because change is constant, we realise the importance of remaining alert and vigilant to developments within the Allenton landscape that affect local people, groups and services.

Certificate of Achievement from the Festival of LearningAllenton Big Local has received a Certificate of Achievement from the Learning and Work Institute follow our nomination for a Festival of Learning Award.

We were nominated for the award by Derby Adult Learning in recognition of the way we have  prioritised training, employment and life skills and the variety of projects we have funded to meet these priorities – through the Work Club, the bursary scheme, and healthy eating classes for families.
