Awards for All - Old application forms only acceptable until Friday 11th August.

Awards for All - Old application forms only acceptable until Friday 11th August.

It was announced last month that Awards for All has three new funding priorities and a much simplified application form. The Big Lottery Fund has told us that they will only accept the old application forms until Friday 11 August.

Awards for All is the small funding scheme of the Big Lottery Fund. It provides grants to £10,00 for projects that last up to 12  months. This is a large fund and good applications stand a high chance of success – about 50% of applications are successful.

The three new funding priorities are:
• bring people together and build strong relationships in and across communities
• improve the places and spaces that matter to communities
• enable more people to fulfil their potential by working to address issues at the earliest possible stage.

It’s important that you involve your community in the design, development and delivery of the activities you’re planning. The Big Lottery Fund feel that your project or activity will be more successful as a result.

They are also keen to support smaller organisations and will consider your income when making a decision. You do not have to be a registered charity to apply.
