National Lottery Communities Fund – Local Connections Fund
The second round of the Local Connections Fund will offer grants of between £300 and £2,500 to small, constituted voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations with an annual income of £50,000 or less.
Round Two focuses on:
- Activities which physically brings people together in a safe and secure way
- Remote activities but where this is the best or only way to build connections for that particular community – this might work well for people who are geographically isolated, those with illnesses or disabilities, or those who are not quite ready to meet people face-to-face
- Helping individuals to get out of the ‘lockdown mentality’ and meet people in their communities again for activities which will be a positive experience for people
- Helping organisations who work to reduce loneliness restart activities – this might be getting volunteers or service users to clean and refresh their meeting space or grounds, or refreshing materials and ensuring equipment is ready to be used.
Please note – if you were awarded funding in Round 1, you cannot apply to Round 2.
