From today, Wednesday 15th November, the flagship funding programme, National Lottery Awards for All, is changing - supporting their ambition to turbocharge funding for grassroots community projects across the UK.
From the 15th November community projects in England will be able to apply funding between £300 and £20,000 to support their projects for up to two years, an increase from the current £10,000 over one year. Mims is very excited to see the ideas communities come up with now more funding has been unlocked with more flexibility.
These changes to National Lottery Awards for All deliver the promise and ambition of our new strategy, It starts with community, launched in June this year. They are the biggest change to National Lottery funding for a generation.
At The National Lottery Community Fund, we value the importance of small grants, it’s these types of grants where we see the furthest reach.
Looking back further, over the last five years we have seen £3 billion awarded in almost 76,000 small grants, reaching communities across the UK. Each year, over 3.1 million people benefit from a National Lottery Awards for All project.
