Wembley Central gets big lottery cash

Wembley  Central is one of nine areas in London to be granted funds by the Big Lottery fund in their latest round.

The funding is designed to help “forgotten areas” – those ignored by other funding – make improvements.

It comes from the Big Local  programme, a £200m Big Lottery Fund investment managed by Local Trust. Each  Big Local area will receive at least  £1m Lottery funding to spend over the next ten years.

Leader  of Brent Council, Cllr Muhammed Butt said:  “It can be spent on  anything from starting up social enterprises and addressing unemployment to  tackling local issues or providing more activities and services for people  locally.”

The Big local is scheme is about bringing together all the local talent,  ambitions, skills and energy from individuals, groups and organisations who  want to make a positive and lasting difference in Wembley Central. Residents  will receive training and support to  help them identify priorities and develop a plan for their area.
