Working to bring together the talent, skill and ambition of local organisations and individuals, in order identify the needs of local people, and take action in response to those needs

We’re about four years into a 10 year, £1 million, Big Lottery funded initiative to invest in North Cleethorpes to make it a better place to live and work.

We’re helping to regenerate buildings, places and open spaces. We’re supporting local people young and old.  We’re encouraging participation through events and activities.  We’re encouraging ideas and supporting those who want North Cleethorpes to develop,

This website exists to share our work – and to encourage you to get involved – after all, it’s your area.

This is an exciting new venture for Cleethorpes and BLNC is very pleased to have been able to contribute to the project – our funding paid for an access ramp to the station concourse.

Apply for Funding

Big Local does have funding each year that can be made available for projects that benefit the local community of North Cleethorpes.  Whether you are a voluntary group, charity, social business or even an individual, then we work with you to decide how best to allocate funding.

Your project will need to have a clear benefit to the North Cleethorpes area, will need to have evidence of a need, will ideally be able to draw in additional funding or volunteer time, and you will need to be able to present this to the Big Local committee.

Read more about the actual application process here.  Take a look at the log of our investment decisions to see what we’ve already invested in.  Look back through all our projects to see how we’ve already invested.  Perhaps come along to our weekly meeting to meet us and discuss your ideas.  Ultimately, get in touch.

If you’ve got a project that benefits the area and you think is ready for consideration by the Big Local North Cleethorpes Partnership then read more about the application process here.

Part of a Plan
Big Local North Cleethorpes is a community led project and a “Local Plan” dictates what has been agreed that is needed to focus on for development of North Cleethorpes.  We’re now into our third generation of the Local Plan and our projects, investments and support align with this plan.  Have a read here.
