So what is Big Local?
Big Local is an exciting opportunity for residents in 150 areas around England to use at least £1m to make a massive and lasting positive difference to their communities.
It’s about bringing together all the local talent, ambitions, skills and energy from individuals, groups and organisations who want to make their area an even better place to live.
Big Local is being run by Local Trust, which is working with the Big Lottery Fund and a range
of partners providing expert advice and support for residents.
What’s it not about?
It’s NOT about the government or a national organisation telling you what to do.
It’s NOT about individual groups fixing their favourite problem without talking to a wide
range of different people who live and work in
It’s NOT about short-term thinking – you’ve got 10 years or more to plan and deliver the best options for your area.
