Building Better Opportunities was a project funded by the National Lottery Community Fund and European Social Fund. The project supported projects in England that tackle poverty and promote social inclusion across Peterborough, Fenland and West Norfolk.

The BBO funding was delivered in 38 Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) areas according to local priorities, which were set by the LEPs themselves. The project supported a variety of projects, ranging from those improving employability for the most disadvantaged, helping those with multiple and complex needs, to improving financial literacy.
