Big Lottery Fund LogoSCVS has arranged for advisors from Big Lottery to meet groups that wish to apply for the Awards for All and People & Places programmes.

Both Awards for All and People & Places programmes have changed their funding limits.

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.

Awards for All Wales which distributes grants from £500 to £10,000  for projects lasting up to one year. (Maximum raised from £5,000)

People and Places which distributes grants from £10,001 to £500,000 for projects lasting up to five years. (With a new simpler application process for grants up to £100,000)

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.”
