We have been waiting for the launch of The National Lottery Community Funds’ new strategy for a little while now and here it is.
Things which Support Cambridgeshire have noticed:
- Awards for all will be rising from 10K to 20K
- They are looking at the place, but both physically and virtually
- The environment is a big part of this
- Along with voice and the engagement of younger audiences
- Finally, health and wellbeing is another area which they will be looking to build on
- Grant scale is diverse, from short-term £300 grants to larger, longer-term grants
Today we’re sharing our bold new strategy to 2030 – It starts with community.
As the UK’s largest community funder, we’ve listened to 18,000 people and organisations to understand where our funding can make the biggest impact.
We will distribute at least £4 billion of #NationalLottery funding by 2030 to tackle some of the big issues facing the UK today and focus our funding, learning and efforts on four community-led missions.
We will support communities to: come together; be environmentally sustainable; help children and young people to thrive; and enable people to live healthier lives.
As part of today’s announcement, we are doubling down on our commitment to grassroots projects through our flagship small grants programme, National Lottery Awards for All, by doubling the size and term of the funding available.
We will also make funding available for new ideas that support our missions this year – £15 million for a new programme to connect communities, opening later this summer, and a £9 million boost to our Climate Action Fund, taking the total investment in Climate Action to £35 million this year.
The next chapter starts today and #ItStartsWithCommunity
