The funding will be distributed over ten years. The neighbourhoods all have a history of difficulty in obtaining resources, including funding from the Big Lottery Fund.Fifty neighbourhoods have been announced today, and a further 50 or more areas across England will be selected by the Lottery Fund in the next 12 to 18 months to benefit from the programme.Peter Wanless Big Lottery Fund Chief Executive said: “The Big Local Trust funding stream will help local people identify their pressing issues and develop the skills and confidence necessary to start changing things in their community for the better. The Trust will involve people in each of the selected 50 areas to decide on the best way to use the funding. This builds on BIG’s record of giving people a greater say in where Lottery money goes”.Expressions of interest from organisations who wish to run the Trust should be received by 12 August 2010.last_img
