LTOs Managing Big Local funding Working as a partnership

Locally trusted organisations

A locally trusted organisation is the organisation chosen by your Big Local partnership to administer and account for the distribution of your funding, and/or deliver activities or services on behalf of the Big Local partnership.

Your Big Local partnership guides the overall direction of Big Local in your area and makes decisions about how your Big Local funding will be used. You might work with more than one locally trusted organisation. This will depend on your Big Local plan and the skills and resources you need.

We have a funding agreement with your locally trusted organisation(s), and this is the document that is legally binding.
