Big Worle Partnership
What is Big Worle?
Big Worle is an exciting opportunity for residents in Worle to invest £1m to make a massive and lasting positive difference to their community. It’s about bringing together all the local talent, ambitions, skills and energy from individuals, groups and organisations who want to make this area an even better place to live.
The £1m has come from the Local Trust, via the Big Lottery Fund. Crucially, this project is about local people. Local people identify what the priorities are and take action to make things happen and make their area an even better place
to live. The £1m must be invested in a specific area of Worle, but ANYONE can be involved, even if you live outside the area.

What’s it not about?
It’s NOT about your local authority, the government or a national organisation telling us what to do.
It’s NOT about individual
groups fixing their favourite problem without talking to a wide range of
different people who live and work in the community.
It’s NOT about short-term thinking – we’ve got 10 years or more to plan and deliver the best options for our area.
Since last year, local residents and organisations from the area have been meeting to begin this exciting project. Anyone can come along to one of the monthly meetings – Dates of the next meeting can always be found on the home page.
Who decides what we do?
Anyone who lives,works or volunteers in the area of Worle shown on the map is encouraged to get involved - you may just want to share your views or you may like to take a more active part in improving our neighbourhood. You can take as little or as much part as you like or have time for.
Decisions will be taken by a group nominated to listen and act on our views.
Big Worle Partnership
We are thrilled to announce that as of September 2nd 2013, It was voted at the Big Worle Meeting that the project would move on to the next stage of being a partnership rather than a steering group
What does this mean?
Big Worle is now being led by the residents.
We decide how the £1 Million can be invested to improve the bigworle area.
Although we will still have the support of the North Somerset Council and VANS it is up to us to decide how to progress.
