£1 million of Big Lottery money is awarded to community projects in Slade Green


Community projects in Slade Green have been given £1 million in Lottery funding.

The cash has been handed over by the Big Lottery Fund’s Big Local scheme and will be spent over ten years on projects picked by people locally.

It is one of eight places in London to be given £1 million which will be spent over ten years.

The cash could be spent on activities including anything from creating new community facilities to starting up training and employment schemes, tackling anti-social behaviour, or providing more activities for young people.

Residents in these areas will also benefit from a range of support, training and networking opportunities to enable them to make best use of their funding.

The areas were picked for the cash windfall as they have a history of difficulty in getting support and funding and are suffering from the economic downturn.

The North End ward which includes Slade Green is one of the 50 most deprived in the capital.
