Session overview: The community is the hero: the story of All In

In 2022, Eastlight Community Homes unveiled an unprecedented opportunity: 20 local people could dedicate a year to creating solutions that tackle the big social issues our communities face – and then making them happen. This is the story of All In, where the heroes were not Eastlight or its staff – but the 20 local residents who took on the challenge and the thousands they worked with in their communities to make a difference.
