What is One Palfrey Big Local?
One Palfrey is one of 150 areas which has been awarded 1 million pounds over 10 years from the Big Lottery Fund.
One Palfrey Big Local, which covers approximately half of the Palfrey ward is one of a number of Big Local resident led programmes being run by Local Trust, across the country that have received money from the Big Lottery Fund to support residents to improve their areas. The aim of One Palfrey big local is to make Palfrey “a great place to live, work and visit”. After extensive consultation residents have chosen the following outcomes to work on over the next 2 years:
- cleaner and safer neighbourhood
- residents will be healthier
- better access to jobs and lifelong learning
- community activities and services will be improved for all
The plan will be delivered in partnership with residents and local community and voluntary groups as well as making partnerships with statutory agencies. The direction and delivery of the plan will be steered by The Partnership group which is made up of residents.
