Big Local – Arley & Ansley (The Leys Millionaires)
The three villages of Old Arley, New Arley and Ansley Village in North Warwickshire form one of 150 areas around England chosen by Local Trust to be part of the Big Local project to use at least £1 Million over 10 years to make a massive and lasting positive difference to their community.
Big Local aims to bring together all the local talent, ambitions, skills and energy from individuals, groups and organisations who want to make their area an even better place to live.
Big Local is funded by the Big Lottery Fund and managed by Local Trust, however it is the local residents in each area that are running the project on a day to day basis. Local Trust works with a range of partners nationally to provide expert advice, access to the skills and experiences of others and support for the local residents. Each area has a dedicated ‘Rep’ from Local Trust who acts as a mentor to the group.
The resident led Big Local Partnership Board in Arley & Ansley have chosen Warwickshire CAVA (North Warwickshire) to act as their Locally Trusted Organisation (LTO) which means that they provide a number of services to the group including employing any staff, acting as our banker, providing liability insurance together with advice and guidance on community issues.
