Hi all

Up to 100 community development and renewal advisers wanted

I wanted to flag up a tender opportunity that some of you in the South East may be interested in.

We (Renaisi) are about to start recruiting up to 100 Community Development and Renewal Advisers for the Big Local programme (see for more details) which is a National Lottery Funded 10 year programme in 150 areas.

Known as ‘Big Local reps’ these advisers will guide and coach 150 communities across England including in the South East to make their areas even better places to live.  The areas have been awarded £1m each as part of Big Local, which gives people locally a key role in deciding how to improve their areas and create lasting change. Each area receives at least £1m to spend over 10 years – along with support, training and networking opportunities.


We now need a pool of reps to help us provide this support. Big Local reps will need to have excellent facilitation skills and be able to use their limited time effectively. This role would particularly suit those working on a freelance basis or those who have capacity to manage it alongside other employment responsibilities. 


Please note this is an invitation to tender.  Renaisi is recruiting and managing Big Local reps on behalf of Local Trust the organisation that has been set up to deliver Big Local.   Reps will be contracted to Renaisi on a national framework contract. 

For further information and details on how to apply please click here for more information or review the documents hyperlink-ed below.

My place is in Bethnal Green, London, but I spend more time in Kent where Fiona is (West Malling) and I notice Lesley is based in Kent. There are some activist pockets in Kent if anyone wants to join us in making contact with them next month so that NatCAN is given some exposure to others. I think it is helpful in less cosmopolitan areas to have such forums as this for people to find like-minded others.
