BIG Wants You to Join the Conversation
The Big Lottery Fund (BIG) is holding a UK wide conversation through a dedicated website on how it should spend 4 billion pounds of lottery funding between 2015 and 2021.
The “online conversation”, as the Big Lottery Fund (BIG) calls it, will run until July 2014.
BIG is asking for views on how it should shape its vision and plans over the six year period in support of its mission “to bring real improvements to communities and the lives of people most in need”.
Called “Your Voice, Our Vision”, the website focuses on four specific areas that are key to the Big Lottery Fund’s work and asks the questions:
- Vibrant communities – How can we grow social capital and help communities to make the most of their strengths and talents?
- Addressing Disadvantage - What can we do to support people living in poverty to achieve a better quality of life? How do we address increasing demand for help in difficult times?
- Working Together - Tell us how we can best work with others to make a difference. How can we share our information, learning and resources for the benefit of others?
- Stronger Sector - How can we best support the development of a stronger voluntary, community and social enterprise sector?
It is easy to join the conversation, simply go to the website and register which is quick and easy. Once registered, visitors can read what others are saying, join in discussions and contribute by adding a blog, film or a tweet.
