What’s it all about?


Awards for All provides voluntary and community groups with a quick and easy way to get small National Lottery grants of between £500 and £5,000 for projects which aim to help improve local communities and the lives of people most in need. 

The programme encourages a wide range of community, health, educational and environmental projects.

What are we looking for?

We will fund projects which support community activity, extend access and participation, increase skill and creativity or generally improve the quality of life of people in their area.

Who can apply?

You can only apply to Awards for All if you are a community group, not for profit group, Community or Town Council, Health body or school.

You do not need to be a registered charity to apply for Awards for All.

What can you apply for?

We will pay for activities including:

  • putting on an event, activity or performance
  • buying new equipment or materials
  • running training courses
  • setting up a pilot project or starting up a new group
  • educational toys and games and information technology equipment
  • paying expenses for volunteers, costs for sessional workers or professional fees
  • transport costs and refurbishment.

But we won’t pay for:

  • activities that happen or start before we confirm our grant
  • any costs you incur when putting together your application
  • day-to-day running costs (for example, utility bills, council tax, rent and insurance)
  • contingency costs
  • endowments
  • feasibility studies
  • fundraising activities for your organisation or others
