Big Lottery launches Community-led Activities Fund

The Big Lottery Fund, Scotland has opened a new five-year £250 million funding scheme that focuses on projects which are community led or will help people and communities most in need. Between now and 2020 groups can apply for grants from £10,000 to £1 million. They will fund activity that embraces these ‘three approaches’:

  • People-led – meaningfully involving the people you’re working with in the development, design and delivery of your activity. Case studies
  • Strengths-based – making the most of, and building on, the skills and experiences of people and assets within communities. Case studies
  • Connected – having a good understanding of what others are doing locally, developing good working relationships and complementing and adding value to other relevant activity in your area. Case studies
