The National Lottery Community Fund
We are here to support people and communities to thrive, by giving them access to National Lottery funds. We are the largest non statutory funder of Scotland’s third sector and last year we awarded over £44 million to over 1100 groups and organisations, with 97% of our grants made to Scotland’s voluntary and community sector.
We want to know how we can support groups where they are living and working, and we have eight local teams operating across Scotland and getting closer to the communities we serve. Last year, 35% of our grants were made to organisations new to us, and each of those awards began with a conversation with one of our teams. Our funding is available to groups of all sizes and capacities and is accessible to those who have not had National Lottery funding before. National Lottery Awards for All Scotland, awarding grants up to £10,000 is often a good place to start and is a National Lottery family joint programme with sportscotland and Creative Scotland. We also have a range of funding opportunities over £10,000 which we can discuss with you. Come along to our stand to find out more.
