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.

Promoting Community Health Wellbeing

Radstock and Westfield Big Local have been working with Hope House Surgery, Radstock, to identify the health and wellbeing needs of the local community. In this film, Hope House Surgery talk about the changing demographic of Radstock and increasing issues related to diabetes and childhood obesity. Ambitious plans are described in terms of tacking these issues with Big Local and other partners. In addition, Big Local has been using small grants, awarded through Dragons Den events, to groups promoting health and wellbeing in the area.
