Introduction to Aberfeldy Big Local

The mission of Aberfeldy Big Local (ABL) is to invest in the local community in Aberfeldy, Tower Hamlet, backing local people to lead on exciting ways to make it a better place to live. The area is going through big changes and we want to make sure that everyone in Aberfeldy can benefit from these. We want regeneration to bring real wins for the community, rather than passing people by. We believe the only way we can achieve this is by working together as a community to share ideas, skills and talents and take advantage of opportunities for us all to gain from.

Our vision is to build a strong and confident community.

Purpose of the role:

To develop and deliver an integrated and effective programme of work in Aberfeldy, in line with the mission, vision and strategic plan developed by the Aberfeldy Big Local Resident Board, specifically:

– Further develop our understanding of what activities, support and opportunities people in Aberfeldy see as important for their health and wellbeing.

– Further develop the ABL service to ensure it responds to what matters to the local community, working with members of the community to co-design, develop, deliver, commission and review resident-led activities and initiatives both in the ABL space and other local community venues.

– Develop the ABL space to be a place that fully lives up to the ambition of it being somewhere for people to go and feel welcome and comfortable, a space to which people will want to return and be a part of – a space for the community.

– Motivate, inspire and lead the ABL team, volunteers and sessional workers to deliver the service.

– Expand the reach of ABL and ensure members of the local community are aware of it, what’s its purpose is and what it offers.

– Manage the operational delivery of the service, including planning, scheduling, financial management, reporting.

– Pro-actively link in with the various colleagues at the Bromley by Bow Centre, including the Delivery Manager (line manager), colleagues in the BBBC Welcome Hub, the Impact team, the Income and Marketing team, the Finance team and the Facilities and – IT team to optimise, share learning and obtain support.

– Manage the relationship with the ABL Residents Board, keeping them informed on a regular basis on progress, challenges, developments; support them to make decisions as and when required and make required adjustments to the plan as and when.

– Further develop relationships with relevant stakeholders, including, amongst others, other local community venues, other local delivery organisations, housing associations, faith groups, health professionals.

– Promote a culture of continuous improvement by ensuring the team is engaged in the implementation and analysis of the BBBC outcomes framework.

– Demonstrate the value of ABL and share its learning and expertise with external audiences. This will involve working closely with the ABL board, the Local Trust Team, the wider BBBC team as well as other relevant stakeholders.

– Develop plans for the legacy of ABL beyond the Big Local funding.
