The Big Lottery Fund is responsible for distributing 40 per cent of the money raised by the National Lottery for good causes. Awards for All is our small grants programme which aims to help improve local communities and the lives of people most in need.
You can apply to Awards for All England if you are a voluntary and community organisation, a school, a parish or town council or a health body, and for between £300 - £10,000.
Awards for All will pay for activities that will benefit the community, including:
- putting on an event, activity or performance
- buying new equipment or materials
- running training courses
- setting up a pilot project or starting up a new group
- carrying out special repairs or conservation work
- paying expenses for volunteers, costs for sessional workers or professional fees
- transport costs.
