Welcome to the Barrowcliff '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 Barrowcliff 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 Barrowcliff with other Big Local areas and highlight what works in communities with a wider audience of practitioners and policy makers.
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.
