Big Lottery are changing the way they work in the UK

We (Big Lottery) have 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.

Reaching Communities

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

Partnerships

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