Fully Funded Gang Awareness Workshops
North Meets South Big Local is a resident organisation led by the people of Marks Gate and North Chadwell Heath.
We exist to ensure the efficient use of a million pounds allocated to the area by the Big Lottery Fund (Local Trust), to address the unique needs of the people that live in our area. Our Steering Group of residents, consult and engage with their peers to identify what is important to people in our area. This information is used to create local plans for the area.
Physical improvement of public facilities / community assets within the area: The aim of these projects is to beautify public spaces in the area; encourage residents of all ages to use existing green / public spaces in creative ways
Social activities for residents of every age group: These projects are opportunities to bring the community together, creating avenues for residents to socialise and make connections.
Positive attitudes and opportunities: These are skills and capacity building projects which foster a “can-do” mentality within the area by encouraging residents to take responsibility for change
