ABOUT US

The Hub.jpg

Big Local Broad Green is a community led initiative funded £1m by Local Trust in 2016 to make improvement to the local area. The Broad Green ward was identified as one of the 150 communities to receive this funding as a part of the £217m provided by The National Lottery Community Fund.

This funding has given us the freedom to make our own decisions on what is best for the area. We've funded over 50 small grants to incredible projects, ideas and initiatives in Broad Green.

Our Vision is that Broad Green Village will be a vibrant and thriving place. It's people - young and old, are connected, resilient to change and proud to live here.

We have a committed group of voluntary Partnership members with historical and deep connections to the area. They all have networks with the extensive range of local organisations addressing the concerns and needs of all local people in the area regardless of their race, creed, age or personal abilities.
