South Plaistow is one of 150 areas selected by the Big Lottery to receive funds from a £200 million 10-year programme to ensure lottery ‘good causes’ money is fairly distributed.
We have over £1 million to spend between 2014 and 2024!

Plaistow South Big Local is about bringing together the local talent, ambitions, skills and energy from individuals, groups and organisations who want to make the area an even better place to live.
The PSBL area is set by the Big Lottery. This is the map and list of streets directly included – PSBL map & streets – though we expect the surrounding area to benefit substantially too.
We have a formal “Partnership Board”, called the Steering Group. Contact them here. Current members are:

We aim to make a significant and lasting positive difference to our community.
Our Vision for south Plaistow:
This website is dedicated to sharing the needs and resources of south Plaistow, and showing the why, what, when and how we are using our £1 million.
These are the Policies & Procedures we have adopted to help us work effectively.
PSBL has consulted locally at schools, youth clubs, community group meetings and events, collecting more than twelve hundred expressions of what local people like about the area and what they want to improve. Our initial Plan has been updated and amended through consultation at our Forum meetings and various surveys.
We have now entered the 3rd Year of our Plan to address the issues and needs raised. The new 3-year Plan to take us into 2020 is here.
