BIG announce £50m grant funding for voluntary & community sector

The Big Lottery Fund (BIG) has announced that it is making an additional £50 million available in grant funding to the voluntary and community sector. As part of the funding package, BIG is making an additional £17million available to fund an additional 650 charitable and community projects through its two main open grants programmes: Reaching Communities & Awards for All.

Over the next few months, BIG will also be offering grants of up to £10,000 to close to 1,000 existing BIG grant holders in the last 18 months of their projects to review the way they work and explore ways of becoming more sustainable.

Projects that are having a particularly significant impact will also receive an additional year’s worth of funding to continue their project and carry out plans to make their projects more sustainable in the long term.
