Funded through the Big Lottery Fund, Big Local is an exciting opportunity for residents in 150 areas around England to use at least £1m to make a massive and lasting positive difference to their communities. 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.
One of the areas selected to receive Big Local funding is North Brixton, an area which includes Brixton Town Centre and the market, Stockwell Park Estate, Canterbury Gardens, Waltham, Robsart, and parts of Angell Town and Loughborough estates. The available funding is strictly for the benefit of residents of this area – please see the Big Local North Brixton map to see if your project is eligible.
