What is Big Local?
Big Local is an exciting opportunity for residents to use £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 projects are running in 150 areas around England. The funding is distributed by the Local Trust. It was setup with £200 million by the Big Lottery Fund which receives a portion of money from every National Lottery ticket sale. More…
