In the first episode of the podcast – 9 Miles East, we take a look back at Barking and Dagenham’s history, exploring the rise, fall and rise again, of one of London’s most underfunded boroughs. But what could a brand new funding model do to change things for the local community? Enter the GROW Fund! BD Giving’s Head of Learning and Participation Cameron Bray breaks down how the fund works and why it’s so important for the people and local businesses in the borough.
