The National Lottery Community Fund (previously the Big Lottery Fund) has been working to put people and communities at the heart of its grants since introducing its People in the Lead Strategic Framework in 2015. Last year alone it gave out over half a billion pounds of National Lottery funding to community projects across the UK. Over 11,000 projects benefited from this, enabling people and communities to bring their ideas to life.
Trust for London is an independent charitable foundation. We aim to tackle poverty and inequality in London and we do this by: funding voluntary and charity groups – currently we make grants totaling around £10 million a year and at any one time we are supporting up to 300 organisations; funding independent research; and providing knowledge and expertise on London’s social issues to policymakers and journalists.
