Circle of Life Ignite is the new name for our nurture project formerly known as Sound Waves.
Big Local Impact nurture new groups and supports them through developmental stages, including incorporation, fundraising and project management.
For the last two and a half years, we have engaged in this process for two community groups:
a) Circle of Life Ignite – you have seen it in our communications as Sound Waves. They have rebranded o reflect the work they plan to do.
b) The Wellbeing Project – VSC Isolation and Loneliness
Circle of Life Ignite (formerly Sound Waves)

a) Who is bringing up our children 2
b) Who is bringing up our children 3
c) Managing your grief 2
d) From grief to What Next
Details will be shared soon!

Peer-to-Peer support groups for Brixton grassroots voluntary & community sector
This project works with residents based in Brixton/Lambeth and working or volunteering in the community.
We are running themed sessions for VCS (voluntary & community sector) workers and volunteers who have really felt the burden of the past year and a half or so. If you or someone you know might benefit from connecting or reconnecting with colleagues in a safe, relaxed, fun, non-work atmosphere to boost wellbeing – then check out and sign up to one of the following series' that spark an interest.
There will be up to eight facilitators to choose from and most will be run approximately six weekly 1-1.5hr workshops.
A local health day event was held Myatt’s Fields North Community Centre last week – details below and attached. Anyone that can attend I encourage you to do so.
