We're open to all applications that meet our criteria, including support during COVID-19

National Lottery funding can help you to make a difference in your community. We offer funding from £300 to £10,000 to support what matters to people and communities.

And with the COVID-19 pandemic still with us, we'll continue to support people and communities most adversely impacted by COVID-19.
