The Big Lottery Fund have made changes to their funding so that it’s easier to apply.
They have nearly tripled the number of staff in England, and they will be working more closely with communities that the Big Lottery support. This means applicants will have the same local point of contact throughout your application.
You can now submit your ideas online, by phone or in person.
There are three types of funding:
- National Lottery Awards for All – this 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
