Run by Local Trust and funded by the Big Lottery Fund, Big Local is taking place in 150 areas across England. The programme offers residents in each community with at least £1m and a range of support to enable them to make a difference in their neighbourhoods.
The four programme outcomes set nationally for Big Local are
- 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.
