Big Local is funded by The National Lottery Community Fund and managed by Local Trust. Nationally we work with a range of partners to deliver Big Local, building on the skills and experiences of others to provide expert advice and support for residents.
Big Local outcomes
- Communities will be better able to identify local needs and take action in response to them.
- People will have increased skills and confidence, so that they continue to identify and respond to needs in the future.
- The community will make a difference to the needs it prioritises.
- People will feel that their area is an even better place to live.
What's it not about
- It’s not about your local authority, 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 the community.
- It's not about short-term thinking – you’ve got 10 years or more to plan and deliver the best options for your area.
