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: talking about resident led change

This film draws on a series of Our Bigger Story workshops and meetings. Some Big Local areas, Birchfield, Grassland Hasmoor and Ramsey Million, held their own ‘Time For A Change’ workshops for local community groups, voluntary organisations and public agencies; and 12 Big local areas were represented by residents, partnership members and Big Local workers at events in Birmingham and London. The film highlights discussions and debates that help us to learn about Big Local - who is involved, how the partnership works, how accountability to residents is ensured, how Big Local is working to make places even better. Thank you to everyone who participated.
