About BIG

Following the launch of Jigsaw Homes Group, the Breathe Investment Grants (BIG) will be replaced by the Jigsaw Foundation.

BIG supported a large number of community projects that improved the quality of life for Group residents and made a real difference to the neighbourhoods where we work.

BIG replaced and consolidated previous funding streams like the Neighbourhood Fund, Green Grants and You Decide.  Successful applicants demonstrated that their project supported one or more of the following priorities.

  • Healthy Living
  • Environmental improvements
  • Young People and Children
  • Older People
  • Sustainability
  • Employment and Training
  • Bring the Community Together
  • Community Safety.

Our supported housing residents from homeless schemes across Wigan, Leigh and Lancaster worked with REEL MCR CIC to learn all about media and film making. They have produced a documentary which showcases various projects and events that have been funded through BIG.  Check it out on our youtube channel.
