Local Trust | Goldthorpe Bolton Big Local

What is Big Local?

Big Local is a programme funded by the National Lottery that;

  • Brings support and investment to the residents of Goldthorpe and Bolton on Dearne to make your community a better place to live
  • Puts residents in charge and all residents views are important
  • Gives funding of £1 million for the community to spend within a 10 year timespan and local residents decide how to spend it

A Big Local Plan has been produced formed from the views and opinions of as wide a section of our community as possible. Several common themes were identified and these formed the basis of the projects in the Plan.

The Goldthorpe and Bolton on Dearne Partnership Board was formed in September 2014 and is responsible for engaging with the community and to steer, manage and deliver the range of projects in the Plan.

The Partnership Board are all unpaid volunteers but are assisted by a Local Trust Representative, Alister Shaw and a part-time paid Support Worker, April Fisher.

We hold regular meetings that are open for anyone in the community to attend and encourage people to come along and get involved and find out what is happening, check out our News page for the dates and times of future meetings.
