The Big Lottery Fund, the largest distributor of National Lottery good cause funding, is responsible for giving out 40% of the money raised for good causes by the National Lottery. Among the good causes it has supported this year through its Awards for All programme has been our Deconstructing c o n f l i c t exhibition and inter-faith lecture.
The Fund is committed to bringing real improvements to communities and the lives of people most in need and has been rolling out grants to health, education, environment and charitable causes across the UK. Since its inception in 2004 we have awarded close to £6bn.
The Fund was formally established by Parliament on 1 December 2006.
The Fund’s Awards for All programme offers grants between £300 and £10,000 to projects that address the issues, needs and aspirations of local communities. Successful initiatives aim to develop skills, improve health, revitalise the local environment and enable people to become healthier, more active citizens. Voluntary and community groups, schools, health bodies, parish and town councils can all apply.
