Statement from Dawn Austwick, CEO, The National Lottery Community Fund regarding Government announcement on 8 April 2020
People and communities are responding to this crisis in an inspiring and humbling way. At The National Lottery Community Fund we are privileged to work with so many charities and voluntary organisations stepping up to support people in this crisis, and playing a vital role in helping others through a very challenging time.
We are delighted to see the Government support for civil society announced on 8 April 2020 and we look forward to working with Government and others to ensure these new funds have the biggest possible impact in communities across the country.
We are now urgently discussing with government details of how the funding will be made available and will provide further information as soon as we are able to do so.
