Making Sompting a more united community, and a better place to live, work and play.

Run by the Local Trust, Big Local is working with over £200m from the Big Lottery Fund and a range of partners, to provide expert advice and support for residents.

The four programme outcomes for Big Local are:

  • Communities will be better able to identify local needs and take action in response to them
  • People will have increased skills and confidence, so that they continue to identify and respond to needs in the future
  • The community will make a difference to the needs it prioritises
  • People will feel that their area is an even better place to live.
