National Lottery Community Fund

The National Lottery Community Fund had paused its usual funding programmes,  focussing instead on providing emergency funding for organisations in response to the coronavirus crisis. But it has now announced that the short-term emergency phase of funding is coming to an end and the regular programmes have now re-opened:

The aim of all the programmes is to support communities to thrive by funding activities that:

  • Build strong relationships in and across communities.
  • Improve the places and spaces that matter to communities.
  • Help more people to reach their potential, by supporting them at the earliest possible stage.

Organisations can apply for funding to:

  • Continue to deliver activity – whether the community needs crisis response, recovery or business as usual activity.
  • Change and adapt, becoming more resilient to respond to new and future challenges.

Applications may be submitted at any time.
