National Lottery Awards for All offers funding from £300 to £10,000 to support what matters to people and communities.
You can apply if your organisation is a:
voluntary or community organisation
constituted group or club
not-for-profit company or community interest company
statutory body (including town, parish and community council).
We cannot accept applications from:
companies that are aimed at generating profits primarily for private distribution
organisations based outside the UK
applications made by one organisation on behalf of another.
What are we looking for in your application?
National Lottery Awards for All has three funding priorities and you must be able to tell us in your application how your project or activity will:
bring people together and build strong relationships in and across communities
improve the places and spaces that matter to communities
enable more people to fulfil their potential by working to address issues at the earliest possible stage.
It’s important to us that you involve your community in the design, development and delivery of the activities you’re planning. We feel that your project or activity will be more successful as a result.
We’re also keen to support smaller organisations and will consider your income when making a decision.
We encourage you to watch this short video as it may be helpful in explaining how to involve your community in the design, development and delivery of the activities you are planning.
Our Funding Officers run weekly webinars about National Lottery Awards for All.
They talk through eligibility criteria, what makes a strong proposal and how to engage people in your community. You also have the chance to ask questions.
