West End Morecambe Big Local (WEM) is a resident-led community partnership working to help improve the West End area of Morecambe through tackling problems and working with others to provide a voice for the local community on decisions which affect the area.

The organisation is charged with delivering the Big Local programme in the West End, one of 150 national projects that have been awarded one million pounds in their local community stretched over a ten year period. Managed by Local Trust, the Big Local aims are to help communities better able to identify needs, take action, increase skills and confidence and make their area a better place to live.

Our work is shaped through local consultation and encouraging new ideas and new ways of working together. The funding we have can support some of this but the most important part of the West End Morecambe Big Local is bringing people together and shaping the wider agenda for the benefit of the community.

The West End area of Morecambe is a close and lively community that looks out on one of the world’s most beautiful seaside landscapes, however, it is also a place that has and continues to endure many challenging issues related to economic and social deprivation. As a community, we live with these challenges every day and in doing so are best placed when it comes to contributing to the ambition of making things better. Can you help us with that goal?
