Who We Are
Farley Big Local is run by the Partnership – a group of residents and partners from the Big Local area, who are responsible for guiding the overall direction of the Big local area.
The Partnership meet every 5/6 weeks to steer the project and hold a public meeting, attend local events and activities regularly where we share updates, continue the discussion around the Big Local conversation and ask for feedback and ideas from the local community to help make sure the projects stay relevant to the local area.

Farley Big Local describes an exciting opportunity to affect change locally by engaging with likeminded individuals. Thanks to the Lottery, over the next decade Farley has £1 million pounds to spend on neighbourhood improvements.
Farley Big Local’s purpose is:
- To identify local needs
- Influence local policy through strong and clear advocacy for Farley
