Awards from the UK Portfolio

Manchester Cares

The UK Portfolio supports UK-wide ideas and projects. It tests and grows bold ideas that put people in the lead to address long-term social issues and to improve the quality of life across the UK and internationally.

COVID-19 response: The UK Portfolio is currently paused to new applications. Additionally, until October 2020, we will be prioritising working with our existing grant holders to support people and communities impacted by COVID-19.

The National Lottery Community Fund as a whole will be prioritising applications that are COVID-19 related. Please see our COVID-19 page for updates, and contact the relevant team in England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland for further information and to apply for funding.

Applying for funding

In the UK Portfolio we are very proud of how diverse our grants have been over the past few years. We now have some new initiatives in development, so we are pausing this funding programme for a period of time. This process will take longer than anticipated as we are currently focussing on supporting our existing grant holders to respond to the COVID-19 crisis.

We will continue to work with current applicants to our Climate Action Fund.

We appreciate your patience, and please watch this space for news throughout 2020. You can also check our Twitter feed for updates.
