About National Lottery Awards for All England

People know best what's needed in their communities. It's important to involve your community from the start - in the design, development and delivery of the activities you're planning. We want to fund projects that are connected to local people and their communities, and use their existing skills and experience.

We can fund projects that'll do at least one of these things:

  • bring people together to build strong relationships in and across communities
  • improve the places and spaces that matter to communities
  • help more people to reach their potential, by supporting them at the earliest possible stage
  • support people, communities and organisations facing more demands and challenges because of the cost-of-living crisis.

When we assess sports, arts and heritage projects, we're looking for projects where the main aim is to strengthen your community in some way. We know most sports, arts and heritage projects are good for communities generally. But we're looking for projects that do a little more.

Let's think about an online dance group for young people. Dance is good exercise, so it promotes health (which is great). But we're looking at how that activity strengthens the community too. Maybe it helps the community with social isolation. Or the project might aim to move young people away from anti-social behaviour.
