Big Local is funded by the Big Lottery 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.
