The UK’s largest community funder unveils its new strategy and first new funding moves. The strategic shift sees a significant boost for grassroots community groups while The National Lottery Community Fund says a focus going forward will be on four key missions where it wants its funding to make the biggest impact:

  • ‘Turbo charging’ support for grassroots: doubling the amount and term of funding available through flagship small grants programme, National Lottery Awards for All
  • £15 million for a new programme to connect communities as the funder seeks to tackle some of the big social issues facing UK communities today.
  • £9 million boost for climate action, one of the funder’s four key missions, bringing total investment this year to £35 million
  • New strategy ‘It starts with community’ will underpin efforts to distribute at least £4 billion of National Lottery funding by 2030.
