About Big Local
Big Local is a programme funded by the Big Lottery Fund for residents in 150 areas around England to each use at least £1m over a 10 year period towards making a positive difference to their communities. Big Local is being run by Local Trust and a range of partners providing advice and support for residents. This will enable people who live and work in the area to build on local talents and aspirations, and to identify and act on their own needs to make their areas even better places to live, now and in the future.
Big Local is resident driven. Local Trust will support, challenge, and encourage people to develop and take ownership of Big Local in their local areas.
