Funding Available From The Big Lottery Fund

The Big Lottery fund give grants from £300 to more than £500,000 to community and voluntary groups and charities to improve the town and communities you live in.


A quick and easy way to get small Lottery grants of between £300 and £10,000

Awards for All offers grants of between £300 and £10,000 for grassroots and community activity that aims to improve life for local people and neighbourhoods. It doesn’t have a deadline and you can apply at any time.

It is their most popular grants programme so they will prioritise groups with smaller incomes. Due to high demand on the programme, organisations that have a large annual income may not be able to get funding through Awards for All.

What would you celebrate in your local area?

Six out of ten people surveyed say they cannot remember ever coming together to celebrate with their community. The Big Lottery Fund wants to help change this with the Celebrate! programme.

They are offering grants of between £300 and £10,000 for groups to hold one off events or activities which celebrate their local community.

You could celebrate something from your community’s history or a local hero. Or maybe it’s a chance to bring people together to get to know their neighbours better.

They have a total of £3.875m for projects in England.
