West End Morecambe Big Local

Small Community Grants and Big Resident Ideas

As part of West End Million’s new programme, we are introducing two ways to try and make some small positive changes happen in the area.

We know that there are lots of local people who have their own great ideas for making life better for residents in the West End Million area but don’t quite know how to make it happen. The Big Ideas fund is a chance for individuals or a group of residents to tell us what they’d like to make happen in the West End. You don’t have to have everything worked out but if the idea sounds good we might be able to make some funding available to develop it or put you in touch with an organisation who could help you try and make the idea happen.

There are individuals, groups and organisations who are already doing things but have other ideas for making life better for West End residents. The Community Chest fund is your chance to make these happen. We have put £20,000 into this fund over three years and are looking for applications up to or around £500 via groups and organisations with a bank account.
