Our Big Local

Hammersmith United Charities is match funding the grant provided by the Big Lottery to the Wormholt and White City Big Local. This is a unique arrangement across all 150 Big Locals nationally and means that the Wormholt and White City Big Local has a total budget of £2 million over 10 years.

The Big Local is a resident led programme which is aiming to improve the quality of life in a sustainable way for all residents within its area in White City. A resident led partnership board drives the programme but local people are supported to get involved in lots of other ways. Current priorities include a focus on youth issues; an innovative project to help more people set up their own businesses; an expanded community chest which allows individual residents to set up their own projects and activities; and work to involve local people in improving the open spaces. It also hosts a very popular annual festival.
