Essex Boys & Girls Clubs is the locally trusted organisation for Canvey’s Big Local Partnership Group.
Canvey’s Big Local £1 Million area centres on the two wards of Winter Gardens and Canvey Island Central. The area is one of 150 Big Local areas across the UK selected by the Big Lottery Fund to receive support over a 10 year period. The Big Lottery Fund chose areas across the country that had been overlooked for funding in the past, particularly by the Big Lottery Fund.
The area boundary is illustrated in the map below.
The Canvey Big Local Partnership Group is a group of volunteers who guide the overall direction of Big Local in the area. The majority (at least 51%) of partnership members must be people who live within our Big Local area and the Group is actively looking for more local residents to join.
The Partnership is responsible for agreeing a shared vision, creating the Big Local plan, overseeing its delivery, collecting evidence to show how the plan is progressing, and reviewing the plan and partnership to make sure they are working in the best way possible.
