A word from WindMill Hill Big local Partnership
The Big Local programme is a Big Lottery Funded initiative. Windmill Hill is one of 150 neighbourhoods across England which have been overlooked for funding in the past and through Big Local have been allocated £1m. In terms of scale, time horizon and ethos, nothing like Big Local has ever existed. In contrast to conventional top down, time-limited, project-led funding, the funding awarded to each Big Local area was provided on the basis that it can be spent over 10-15 years at the communities’ own chosen pace, and on their own plans and priorities. It’s about bringing together all the local talent, ambitions, skills and energy from individuals, groups and organisations who want to make their area an even better place to live.
