Speak Up Preston

This project is part of the Neighbourhood Challenge, a programme from NESTA, working with the Big Lottery Fund, to support community-led innovation.

It aims to show how community organisations – when equipped with the right skills, practical tools and small, catalytic amounts of money – can galvanise people to work together to create innovative responses to local priorities, particularly in neighbourhoods with low levels of social capital.


  • Around 25 community reporters trained throughout the East Preston Area

  • Continued and strengthening relationships between all project partners
