Fresh thinking

Our Strategic Framework for 2015-21
In 2009 we published Big thinking – our Strategic Framework to 2015 and What You Told Us

, an in-depth analysis of the responses to the consultation, drawing on material from the online survey and the regional and national meetings held during the three months of the consultation. These documents set out the principles that underpin Big Lottery Fund’s approach to funding in the UK and remain central to our work, outlining the principles that inform the funding priorities that guide us.

However, the world has moved on since then, both inside and outside of  and so has our strategic plan. Fresh thinking: the Next Chapter outlines how we are adapting to these changes and offers a clear vision of what you can expect from us as a funder up until 2015.

Fresh thinking builds upon the principles outlined in Big thinking. Our mission remains the same, we are a committed outcomes funder and we will continue to offer a mixed funding portfolio. However, we are also embracing new areas of work like social investment and delivering funding with others where we can make even more difference for communities and the lives of people most in need.

Refreshing our strategic framework

From February to July 2014 we are running Your Voice Our Vision, a UK-wide conversation about how the Big Lottery Fund needs to evolve to meet the challenges and opportunities of the next six years. You can find out more by visiting our website www.yourvoiceourvision.org.uk, where you can get involved in a whole range of conversations about the Big Lottery Fund’s next strategic framework.
