The Big Lottery Fund distributes 40% of the money raised by the National Lottery for good causes. Every year we invest over £650 million in projects big and small in health, education, environment and charitable purposes. Our funding supports the aspirations of people who want to make life better for their communities. Our new Strategic Framework 2015-2021 sets out what people can expect from us as a funder over the next six years.
