Leecliffe Big Local is a resident led charity that create and fund projects to make Borehamwood a better place to live. Funded by the National Lottery Community Fund and Local Trust, we fund a variety of projects to tackle the issues residents care about the most. This include supporting young people, people's mental health, tackling poverty and much more.

We have developed a brand new volunteering programme to support the projects our projects, the Big Local Champion programme, to enable people to support our projects as well as gain new skills and get involved in projects that change people's lives for the better.

As one of our Big Local Champions there are a whole range of things you can volunteer for. For example, you could support our Chatter Tables group, which tackles loneliness and isolation. You could help educate primary school students about healthy eating and the environment with our Veg Club project or raise teenagers’ aspirations at our Youth Cafe. Or you could help families in need by volunteering at WD6 Food Bank. Whatever your passion is, we have something that can help you can make a difference in Borehamwood!

All of our Big Local Champions will have access to a range of support, including a free DBS Check, fully funded training, travel expenses covered, networking events and a state-of-the-art volunteering app to make finding opportunities quick and easy!
