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.

Barrowcliff Big Local – Making a Difference

In 2014, Barrowcliff Big Local produced its first Big Local plan. Its vision was to create ‘A safe, clean and attractive neighbourhood that people are proud of and where everyone has the best possible chances in life’.
This film portrays some examples of what has been achieved and why these projects have been significant for local residents: from the play park, to ‘the Biggest Loser’ project, to the Sparks family support, to enhanced opportunities for all children at the local primary school.
