ONE MILLION POUNDS!

 

That's how much money has been given to our community to spend over the next 10 years to celebrate what's great about Noel Park and help continue making it a better place to live as part of the Big Local scheme run by the 'Local Trust' which has been given £200m by the Big Lottery Fund.



We've spent the past few months talking to neighbours and visiting community spaces and created a plan for Noel Park Big Local that we'd love your feedback on so head here to see that!

Do you have any views about what it's like to live in Noel Park? we want to hear from you whether you live in the Sandlings, Sky City, the conservation area or Page High How do you think we could spend £1m to make it a better place to live? We'd love you to get involved by getting in touch, coming along to interim steering group meetings, attending community events or filling out a survey. if you’re already planning a new great idea head over to the funding page to see if our Small Grants Fund can help!


What is Big Local?

Big Local is an exciting opportunity for residents in 150 areas around England to use at least £1m to make a massive and lasting positive difference to their communities. It’s about bringing together all the local talent, ambitions, skills and energy from individuals, groups and organisations who want to make their area an even better place to live.

Big Local is being run by Local Trust, which is working with over £200m from the Big Lottery Fund and a range of partners providing expert advice and support for residents.

 

The four programme outcomes 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
