National Lottery Fund

Grants of £300 – £10,000

If you are a voluntary or community organisation, school, health body or a parish or town council, have a UK-based bank account in the name of the organisation (that requires at least three people who are unrelated and do not live at the same address), you should be able to apply. You will also need a written governing document e.g. set of rules, articles of association or constitution. They do not fund individuals or sole traders. Funding is available to not for profit groups who have a bank account that requires at least two unrelated people (not living at the same address).

Please note applications take around 18 weeks to assess. We would recommend you submit five months in advance of anticipated project start date.
