Coastal Community Challenge

The objective of the fund is to community projects that improve the wellbeing of people living in Mablethorpe, Trusthorpe and Sutton on Sea and to make life more comfortable, ease distress and isolation for those most in need

It is funded through Big Local. Big Local is delivered nationally by Local Trust with an investment of over £200m from the Big Lottery Fund. Big Local is happening in 150 communities across England over the next 15 years. It provides residents in each community with at least £1m and a range of other support and funding to develop ways of making their areas even better places to live.
