Big Lottery Fund puts pound-power into the hands of deprived communities

For 150 areas in the UK needing the most help, support came in the form of 1 million pound grants to fund community-led projects. What sets this funding apart is that 75% of those on the decision-making boards are local residents. The Big Lottery Fund’s grants have already funded communities markets and local revitalization efforts, and more is on the way.
