Positive feedback from community organisations further validates the impact of BIG Alliance’s work, providing concrete evidence of the difference we make.

Feedback was wonderful and here are some quotes:

“We really appreciate the support we have received. The Team Challenges have made a massive difference to the site and workload of staff. The children are always impressed with the work done, and it helps them feel like they/their playground is valued.

“The service we received pointed us in the right direction and gave us an opportunity to rethink our operating model and priorities.”

“The BIG Alliance has been a great asset to our work and has provided us with support to further develop the organisation.

“We are so, so grateful for all the support we have received from ELBA/BIG over many years and look forward to continuing our partnership this year and beyond.

We’d like to say a BIG thank you to all our community partners, corporate partners and volunteers for your continued support. Working together means we can have a bigger impact on real community needs, making Islington a better place to live!
