The Residents Stories

Our Bigger Story is a multimedia evaluation which aims to record change in Big Local areas, and understand how those changes come about and how they can be sustained. Residents are telling their stories of change over a ten year period, through a range of media including animation and film.

Big Local outcomes

Over 2015-16, Our Bigger Story made 34 films with Big Local partnerships recording what was happening in 15 Big Local areas and, in cross partnership workshops, partners reflections on the change Big Local is making. This film draws on those materials to present an overview of the impact Big Local is having and the progress areas are making in terms of bringing about change for individuals, groups and the community as a whole.
