Big Lottery Reaching Communities fund reopened

The Big Lottery Reaching Communities fund has reopened and £190m is now available to organisations who want to take action on the issues that matter to people and communities.

Reaching Communities can provide flexible funding of over £10,000 for up to five years to organisations that enable communities to thrive and meet their three funding priorities of:

  • 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.

Grants can cover project activities, operating costs, organisational development and capital costs.

Check whether you are eligible for funding and then submit an outline of the project.
