thriving and caring community
Grange Big Local (GBL) is a resident-led, lottery funded community project working in a small pocket of East Finchley, nestled between the North Circular, East End Road, Church Lane, and the High Road. We've been awarded a lottery grant of £1 million to make a positive difference to our area and it's local residents that decide where the money goes.
Our Residents Can Flourish
We will work with residents to create an inclusive and caring community, building solidarity and allowing people to support each another.
In this three-year plan, we will focus on empowering the community to run their own projects, organise inclusive and accessible events that bring people together, and get everyone involved.
Our Environment Can Blossom
We want to promote our local environment, whilst nurturing and growing a green, attractive ecology that provides opportunities and a variety of experiences for everyone who lives here.
In this three year plan, we will focus on improving both the Underpass and Market Place playground, asset mapping and improving existing green spaces, and taking every opportunity to celebrate our local environment!
Our Economy Can Grow
We want to support residents to ensure that those who are struggling feel empowered and have the agency to determine their direction of growth. We hope to contribute to the reduction of structural and systemic inequality in any way we can.
In this three-year plan, we will focus on supporting families, creating opportunities, and funding initiatives that help those who are struggling financially - especially in the current climate
Our 2020-2023 Plan
For these next three years, we have split our work into 3 different strands.
