Since 2006, Big Lottery Fund has invested £2.5billion in over 56,000 projects: from community centres and parks to homeless shelters and counselling services. These projects have improved lives, transformed communities and created thousands of jobs and volunteering opportunities.
We have recently reorganised our work across England to improve our local reach and ensure our funding is focussed on people and communities most in need. We have reshaped our regional outreach to create a new local presence, with staff based across England.
In England we have open funding programmes Awards for All and Reaching Communities, which are responsive to need in communities across England, as well as a series of strategic investments tackling a number of entrenched social problems.
People Powered Change runs through all our engagements, investments and activity in England. It is about building on existing community assets, skills, talents and resources; collaborating with others; sharing learning; and celebrating success and impact.
Please explore the website and the information on our programmes. If you have any questions or would like to discuss the funding we have available, please contact our Big Advice team on 0345 4 10 20 30 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
