The National Lottery have made changes to their funding so that it’s easier to apply for
They have nearly tripled the number of staff they have across England, and they will be working more closely with communities that they support. This means you’ll have the same local point of contact throughout your application.
They are also moving away from standardised application forms so that they 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.
They offer three types of funding:
National Lottery Awards for All
The National Lottery Awards for All scheme offers funding from £300 to £10,000 to support what matters to people and communities.
Reaching Communities offers grants of over £10,000 to support single organisations with great ideas that enable communities to thrive.
The Partnerships funding provides grants of over £10,000 for groups or organisations who have great ideas to do amazing things together.
