Today the BIG Lottery has announced that ‘people-powered change’ will be the new underpinning principle of its English programmes.
People-powered change, the funder says, is ‘not a new programme you can bid to’, it’s the ‘over-arching banner under which all BIG’s investments in England will sit.’ People-powered change is about ‘unlocking and inspiring community action’. You can read a Q&A on the lottery website here.
Is this the unveiling of a new ‘Big Society Lottery’? It certainly sounds that way.
