The Big Lottery Fund has invested £200m in the newly formed national Local Trust to fund Big Local. Money is set aside to help up to 150 areas in England become better places to live, now and in the future.
Fratton will get at least £1m of lottery money over 10 years. Local Trust/Big Local will look after the money for all the areas but local people will decide how it’s spent.
Local Trust/Big Local wants people to work together to decide what their area needs or what can be improved to make it a better place to live.
