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.
During the I matters workshop we discussed body image and low self-esteem the young people opened up and expressed their opinions about what is meant to be the norm and how you should look according to the media, where as in reality this is very different. The young people understood that majority of people don’t like something about their body and it is important not to bully others about their appearance as this leads to them having a low self-esteem.
