Big Local

Big Local is a Lottery funded 10 year project which aims to bring together local talent, skills and energy from individuals, groups and organisations to make their area a better place to live and work in.

It is run by a Partnership of local residents who make decisions about how to spend £1million of Lottery funding.

In Wormholt and White City we have their initial £1million match funded by Hammersmith United Charities that’s mean They have £2million to spend over 10 years. They are about to start year 3 of our plan and have been on an inspiring journey so far. After a lot of consultation, residents decided to focus our plan on six key areas:

  1. Capacity Building
  2. Improving the Open Spaces
  3. Enterprise and Training
  4. Improving the lives of children and families
  5. Community safety
  6. Setting up a Befriending Scheme

Through the consultation process six priorities have been identified and the following solutions:

  • Providing befriending services for the elderly and vulnerable
  • Improving open spaces for all residents
  • Enhancing the lives of children and families
  • Providing more opportunities for training and employment for young people and adults
  • Building the skills and abilities of local residents to run their own communities, manage the delivery of local services and start new businesses
  • Improving community safety
