A Big Local Small grant can be used for a range of projects or purposes that will provide clear benefit to the Big Local area and people living in it.  

We are keen to support Big Local residents taking steps to solve or alleviate neighbourhood problems, and groups who wish to provide beneficial services to other residents.  If you have an idea that might be delivered with some grant funding but are not sure how to take it forward please contact Jan Papworth.  We can provide support to help you get things started.

Read “information for Applicants” to find out who can apply, what the grant can be used for, and how to apply.  If you have any questions or need help with your application, please contact our Community Development Worker, Jan Papworth on 01424 444010 or (Mon-Weds).
