Local Trust Big Local logo Allenton Big Local was one of 20 Big Local areas chosen to participate in a piece of research conducted by Resources for Change on behalf of Local Trust. The aim of the research was to:

“Capture the impact, achievements and learning of some of the earliest plans to be endorsed to demonstrate what the Big Local model has been able to achieve and draw out learning for other Big Local areas moving into delivery. “

Additionally, the researchers were tasked with finding out how each of the Big Local areas they talked to were measuring the impact of their activities.

Activities for Allenton Big Local’s second plan for the period April 2016 to March 2019 (Years 3 to 5) are now underway and being delivered.

Following a thorough review of the activities and projects delivered during Allenton Big Local’s first two years, the Partnership Group agreed to continue with the activities that have brought positive benefits to the Allenton area, and provide funding for some new areas of work and activity.

Allenton Big Local is about to enter Year 3 of a 10 year investment period. As we developed our plan for April 2016 to March 2019, we reflected on and reviewed our activities to get a better understanding of the impact Big Local is having on the local community. We also monitor projects on an ongoing basis through management reports and by talking to delivery partners and the people who are benefiting from activities. The reports are shared on our website alongside case studies and stories of change, as well as through our newsletters and on social media.
