A CHARITY which works to improve the life chances of young people in deprived areas has merged.
Big World Impact was founded by internationally-successful businesswoman Joanne White, who was born and brought up in Leigh Park and wanted to put something back into the community she loves.
The charity supports 1,000 young people through activities in the area.
It has now merged with Active Communities Network, which works with young people across the country.
Miss White said: ‘This merger will provide a huge platform for Leigh Park.’
