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.
Hanwell Big Local's Small Grants funded the under 25's stay and play to help support Young families as they feel isolated and a lot don’t have any friendships with families of a similar age outside of group. Families attend the trip which they enjoyed being able to go on rides with their children, seeing all the colourful lights and being able to attend a trip they could not afford, parents formed friendship during the trip. We received some really nice feedback from parents, "Being with other mums my age and the help and support i got with my 2 kids" "Was a lovely day out and i really enjoyed my time spent with my child and everyone else and being able to enjoy the rides with my child"
