FUNDING NEWS

 

Changes to National Lottery Funding - Big Lottery Fund

We've made changes to our funding so that it's easier to apply for National Lottery funding.

We have nearly tripled the number of staff we have across England, and they will be working more closely with communities that we support. This means you'll have the same local point of contact throughout your application.

We're also moving away from standardised application forms so that we can focus on supporting the best ideas, not the people who are best at filling in forms. You can now submit your ideas online, by phone or in person.

We offer three types of funding:

National Lottery Awards for All

Our National Lottery Awards for All scheme offers funding from £300 to £10,000 to support what matters to people and communities.

Find out more about National Lottery Awards for All funding

Reaching Communities

Reaching Communities offers grants of over £10,000 to support single organisations with great ideas that enable communities to thrive. 

Find out more about Reaching Communities funding

Partnerships

Our Partnerships funding provides grants of over £10,000 for groups or organisations who have great ideas to do amazing things together.

Coalfields Community Investment Programme (England) to reopen for new enquiries

The Coalfields Regeneration Trust is dedicated to improving the quality of life for the 5.5 million people living in Britain’s former mining communities. Many of these communities still require support due to the huge impact the closure of the mines had upon them.

The Coalfields Community Investment Programme (England) is a £500,000 fund created to support activities that tackle some of the key challenges that still remain in coalfield communities. The fund is open to projects that deliver in the top 30% most deprived coalfield communities and that will make a positive difference in addressing the following themes:

Skills: Growing the skills of people in order to increase their opportunities

Employment: Developing pathways to increase the number of people in work

Health: Supporting activities that improve the health and wellbeing of all age groups

Our offer will reopen on Monday 25th June 2018 and all the information on registering an enquiry relating to a project is on the following page:
