Welcome to the Hanwell '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 Hanwell 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 Hanwell with other Big Local areas and highlight what works in communities with a wider audience of practitioners and policy makers.
This is a short interview for Somers Vale Radio between Rob Wicke (Radstock and Westfield Big Local) and Ev Robinson. Ev, with the support of a small grant from Radstock and Westfield’s ‘Dragon’s Den small grants scheme, set up Dial and Smile – a befriending service for isolated older people in the community.
