Aftercare Funding ProgrammeGambleAwareLevel 1: funding of up to £150,000 for smaller or newer organisations or for those looking to test an approach. These projects should be between 18-36 months long.

Level 2: funding of up to £350,000 for larger organisations that are already established and want to grow or develop their work further. These projects are expected to be between 24-36 months, with longer projects preferred.
LincolnshireGambleAware is inviting applications from organisations supporting people in recovery from gambling harm. The focus for the aftercare intervention is not about the process of stopping or reducing gambling, but in the longer-term recovery and rebuild which might be needed for people to live happy and healthy lives

Three specific priority areas (it is not compulsory to meet one of these):

Projects which aim to reach those who experience the greatest inequalities or people from disadvantaged communities
Projects delivered in partnership, particularly where the partnership involves a gambling specialist organisation and (an)other organisations with different specialisms
Projects which are led by people with lived experience of gambling harms.

Community Resilience FundGambleAwareUp to £100000LincolnshireThe main aim of the CRF is to provide short-term funding to address inequalities experienced by disadvantaged communities across Great Britain, which have been exacerbated by the cost-of-living crisis. The CRF aims to provide funding to enable organisations to support their communities, recognising that the current cost-of-living crisis will be exacerbating gambling harms and risk of experiencing gambling harms for many people.

Funding may be used, for example, to:

Develop or accelerate an existing service/project.
Work with a new community.
Support innovation.
Develop or strengthen a new partnership within the community/local area.
