The Big Lottery Fund in England is investing £200 million in 150 urban and rural communities that have been overlooked for funding in the past.

Bourne is receiving at least £1m Lottery funding over the next 10 years, which residents themselves will be in charge of spending on ways to improve their community from training and employment schemes to tackling anti-social behaviour, creating new community facilities or providing more activities for young people.

Bourne will also be given support, training, and networking opportunities to help them develop their plans and empower them to find solutions that work for their communities.

Managed by Local Trust, an independent organisation, and supported by a range of partner organisations, Big Local is targeting pockets of the country that have been overlooked for funding and resources in the past and may face issues including the decline of local industry, high levels of unemployment, or a pressing need for new support services or activities.
