Awards for All Grant Funding – Changes this Autumn

Active Derbyshire, Active Notts, Funding, News

Some significant changes have been announced in the National Lottery Community Fund’s new strategy which will impact upon their Awards for All grant programme.

  • The maximum Awards for All grant to communities will double to £20,000 this autumn.
  • Groups will also be given two years to complete Awards for All projects – up from the current 12 months.

There is a greater emphasis on equitable funding.  They advise that they “know not all communities have the opportunities or the right set-up to come together. So, while our funding is available to all communities, we’ll invest most where the need is greatest, with people, places and communities who experience poverty, disadvantage and discrimination.”

There community-led missions will be:

  • supporting communities to connect.
  • supporting environmentally sustainable communities that
  • enabling children and young people to thrive
  • enable people to live healthier lives.
