Helping to make Distington an even better place to live

Welcome to our Distington Big Local Website! Here you can find out more about Big Local including our current projects. There are also a number of ways you can get involved with Distington Big Local.

Big Local is an exciting opportunity for residents in 150 areas around England to use a £1 million Big Lottery investment to make a lasting positive difference to their communities.


Distington Big Local are delighted to announce that we have been presented with the Geoff Brown Innovation Award!! The award was presented to us by ACTion with Communities in Cumbria on 30 October 2019.

It is to recognise innovative community projects and we received it for our community led housing development scheme.  Well done to all our volunteers for their years of hard work on this project to date.
