SCVS are pleased that advisors from Big Lottery will be at SCVS to meet groups that wish to apply for either Awards for All or People & Places programmes (see below).

Every year Big Lottery Fund distributes millions of pounds of National Lottery funding to good causes. We can fund not for profit and voluntary organisations to deliver projects that improve health, education, environment and improve the lives of people and communities most in need. We can fund capital or revenue projects and have two grants available. We are one of four bodies distributing National Lottery funding, if your project relates to sport, arts or heritage, please take a look at our blog to identify the most suitable funder.

  • Awards for All Wales - distributes grants from £300 to £10,000 for projects lasting up to one year. (Maximum raised from £5,000)
  • People and Places - distributes grants from £10,001 to £500,000 for projects lasting up to five years. (With a simpler application process for grants up to £100,000)

    Times will be allocated on a first come basis from 10am on 5th July 2018. If you can only make a morning or afternoon let us know in your email and we will do our best to meet your request. Spaces are limited so early booking is recommended.
