Who is eligible?
- All voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations are eligible to apply.
- Funding is available between £300 and £10,000 for projects lasting up to 12 months.
- The National Lottery Awards for All is an open programme, which means there are no closing dates for applications.
- Applications from groups who have received an Awards for All grant within the last 2 years will be lower priority.
We may update the application materials from time to time, so if you’re thinking of applying make sure you’ve read the most up-to-date information on our website.
If you have an idea for a larger project, you may wish to consider applying to our People and Communities or, if your project specifically targets young people aged between 18 and 25, our Empowering Young People programme. Both of these offer funding between £10,000 to £500,000 for projects lasting between 1-5 years.
If you aren’t sure which programme to apply to or would like to chat about your project with someone from The National Lottery Community Fund, please call our advice line on 028 9055 1455.
We will usually tell you our decision within 6 to 8 weeks of receiving your application, although this may take longer during busier periods.
