Building Community Spirit

Boston Big Local will support the coordination of existing activities that increase community spirit and fund additional activities where there is an identified need. A lead delivery partner will coordinate the activities under each priority and any activities or services funded will not replace statutory services.

Outcomes for all priorities under this theme

We will know we have made a difference when:

  • Residents from the Boston Big Local area tell us they feel there is greater community spirit and public pride.
  • Residents tell us they feel there is more appreciation of the diversity of culture and backgrounds within the Boston Big Local area.
  • Residents and local organisations tell us there is greater participation in community life.

To achieve these outcomes, the Partnership Group decided on three priorities:

  • Provide new and support existing activities that draw people together from different backgrounds within the Boston Big Local area.
  • Improve facilities for community gatherings and events.
  • Provide small grants through a community chest programme to support local initiatives linked to all four Boston Big Local themes.
