  • Your Square Mile which will use £830,000 of funding to develop a digital platform to support the piloting and roll out of Your Square Mile. The locally controlled digital platform will aggregate community activity providing people with access to local information and resources, including information about local groups, opportunities and local support services. Your Square Mile has already embarked on 16 pilots and will launch the first stage of its digital platform in late summer. It will then launch as a mutual for all citizens to join in the autumn. The Media Trust received £1.89 million to support citizen journalism and aggregate, package and distribute community news stories across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. A TV and online platform will be supported by professional journalism, UK-wide news distribution and a new online Academy of Citizen Journalism. The new Academy will provide community news hubs with the tools, online training and resources to support and develop the skills of the Active Citizen Journalists who will be at the heart of the hubs. £2.2m for its Big Venture Challenge , a national competition for the most ambitious social entrepreneurs in England. It is looking for people with big ideas to step up and meet the challenges faced by disadvantaged communities today. The 25 winners of the Big Venture Challenge will each get an initial £25,000 plus the chance to access up to an additional £150,000 if matched by co-investors. Winners will also get high level business support and mentoring to help them grow their ventures to scale. NESTA’s Neighbourhood Challenge received £2m towards equipping 16 finalist projects with the right skills, practical tools and small, catalytic amounts of money to galvanise people to work together to create innovative responses to local priorities, particularly in neighbourhoods with low levels of social capital. The Young Foundation received £820,000 to boost local community capacity to tackle the issues that matter most, by working with the key agencies that promote and spread community organising, strengthening their ability to work in new areas. Alongside this, the Young Foundation will support communities to campaign and lobby for change through popular social media platforms and – where appropriate – newly developed digital tools. Community groups from across Greater Manchester are more than £100,000 better off thanks to the M.E.N and the Big Lottery Fund . Local organisations could apply for between £300 and £10,000 of lottery funding through the M.E.N and its weekly titles. It was put to the public to vote for those which most deserved the funding and 13 awards were given out totalling more than £100,000. Up to 168 groups applied to take part in the People Powered Change project and more than 3,000 people voted.
