Summary of Big Lottery funds:

Reaching Communities England provides funding between £10,000-£500,000 and can fund some or all of the costs associated with delivering your project such as staff salaries, training, equipment etc.  It can also fund up to £100,000 for small-scale capital work.

The most important thing is that it is your ideas to make positive changes in your community and that the people who will benefit will have influenced or be involved in the project. The fund is particularly interested in projects that support:

  • Lasting and sustainable changes to places and spaces
  • Communities to develop happier and stronger relationships with each other
  • Taking action to focus on the root causes of social problems to tackle them at the earliest possible stage

Awards for All from the National Lottery offers funding from £300 to £10,000 to support projects and activities that matter to people and communities, usually taking place within a 12 month period or for one-off events.

It is important to show how your project will:

  • bring people together and build strong relationships in and across communities
  • improve the places and spaces that matter to communities
  • enable more people to fulfil their potential by working to address issues at the earliest possible stage
  • involve your community in the design, development and delivery of the activities
