About the Big Lottery Fund
Big Lottery Fund is the largest community funder in the UK. Last year we distributed £700m to 12,000 projects, using money raised by National Lottery players.
We believe that communities are strengthened when people come together, forming relationships, developing skills and sharing ideas. This is the vision we’re working towards – a society where people can take the lead in growing happy, sustainable communities for the future.
Most of our grants support local charities run by volunteers. Whether the grant is for £500, or £5m, our funding is used by communities to run amazing projects led by local people. We don’t tell people what to do – we respond to what matters to them. They know what their communities need, and they are best placed to make great things happen.
