Big Local: Beyond the Early Years: new report and films

Over the past two years the Third Sector Research Centre has been evaluating Big Local: a resident led change initiative in 150 communities in England, managed by Local Trust and funded through the Big Lottery. This is a unique longitudinal evaluation in that it is tracking change in 15 communities over a decade using film, audio and other media as well as more traditional research methods. 37 such films are available on the Our Bigger Story vimeo channel.

The first of the Our Bigger Story evaluation reports were published in July 2017 and consist of summary and full report – which is also available as an e-book.

Further films about the 15 areas taking part in the evaluation are available on the Our Bigger Story website: www.ourbiggerstory.com.
