QSA supports three Big Local community projects in London: Aberfeldy Big Local, in Tower Hamlets; Pimlico Million, in Westminster; and World’s End and Lots Road Big Local, in Kensington and Chelsea.
Big Local is a national initiative run by Local Trust, providing 150 communities across England with £1m each to use as they see fit. Funding is long term, resident-led and non-prescriptive; an opportunity for skilled and passionate local people to build up capacity and confidence to make decisions on what is best for their area.
Since 2018, QSA has been supporting some of these communities in London to help them achieve their ambitions. As the ‘local trusted organisation’ for these projects, we draw from our depth of experience and enthusiasm in helping communities to flourish; providing a sounding board, and careful oversight of the funding.
Each of these community projects has its own website – if you are a local resident, funder or other local stakeholder please see the following websites for the most up to date information on Big Local activities in these areas:
These projects are being supported through Big Local and administered by Local Trust for the Big Lottery Fund.
