Welcome to the Revoe Blackpool 'Our Bigger Story' website. This is part of the multi media evaluation of 15 Big Local areas in England. The website is an opportunity to follow what is changing in Revoe Blackpool as a result of Big Local over a ten year period.
The aim of the website is to share the learning from everything that is happening in Revoe Blackpool with other Big Local areas and highlight what works in communities with a wider audience of practitioners and policy makers.
Mutual Gain, Lancashire Police, Blackpool Council, Revoe Learning Academy and Revoelution came together to support and facilitate a second World Café event in Revoe. The first successful one was held last September, however the momentum seemed to slow down and further action was not picked up as well as it could of been. This time, all the partners involved were keen to make sure this did not happen again and that we were able to get to a stage where solutions and schemes are in place with participatory budgeting as an overall goal. Through a great deal of promotion and hard work we had over 80 residents attend the World Café, spending over 2 hours discussing issues around drug and substance misuse in the Revoe area.
