The Big local trust is an independent charitable trust that will support local funding schemes in 100-150 urban and rural neighbourhoods. The targeted neighbourhoods will be places where many people face multiple barriers to meeting their needs, and which have not had great success in gaining resourses and help. Mablethorpe, Trusthorpe and Sutton on Sea have been chosen as one of these neighbourhoods and will receive between £1m and £2m, and will have up to 10 years to allocate this money.
The aim of the local funding scheme is to enable people to make their communities better places to live, now and in the future. The scheme will help people develop the skills and confidence they need to identify priorities that matter to them and to take action to change things for the better.
The local funding schemes will support projects that meet needs that local people have identified as their priorities.
What would you do with £1million? The Big Local Trust is giving between £1m and £2m to Mablethorpe, Trusthorpe and Sutton on Sea, to be spent over the next 10 years.
The idea is to put you in control of shaping your community. With this funding, you have the opportunity to improve your community and make it a better place to live in, now and in the future. We need you to identify the most important issues that affect you and your family in your community.
The funding will be spent on projects that you have identified as important and beneficial to meeting local peoples’ needs and improving the community you live in.
We want to hear from every one of you, because without you we cannot do it!
Communities are better able to identify needs and resposes to them and to take action to deal with them.
Community involvement in choosing priorities and specific projects.
No quick fixes; money is about helping to make a long-term difference with sustainable solutions to be encouraged.
