The Our Place approach is flexible and long-term – it will progress at a pace that is right for each community and support will be provided by contractors appointed by the Big Lottery Fund.
Our Place is also focused on the assets that exist in these neighbourhoods. It will bring together local talent and energy, connect individuals, groups and organisations, and increase the confidence of people to take positive action.
Our Place supports local people to identify priorities for their area and produce a shared neighbourhood vision statement. Your application for funding is expected to address at least one of the priorities identified in your neighbourhood’s vision statement.
Please note that Our Place is not an open programme. Find out what other funding is available using our Funding Finder.
