The Arley and Ansley Big Local area is also known as The Leys Millionaires. The project is run, on a day to day basis, by the Partnership Board which is an unincorporated body made up of local residents who must make up the majority of the members.

In addition, each Big Local area selects a Locally Trusted Organisation (LTO) that provide the services associated with running the project such as employing staff, financial management of the grant, insurance and providing general guidance. The Partnership will adopt and follow the relevant processes and procedures of their LTO.

Local Trust also assigns each area a mentor (their Rep) to provide guidance to the Partnership.
