National Lottery: Awards for All

Grants up to £10,000 are available to support community organisations with projects and activities in their local area.

You can apply for funding to deliver a new or existing activity or to support your organisation to change and adapt to new and future challenges.

Awards for All funding is for projects and organisations which aim 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 that are facing increased demands and challenges as a direct result of the cost-of-living crisis.

You can also apply for a grant to help your community to celebrate national events including the Coronation of His Majesty The King, The Eurovision Song Contest and the 75th anniversary of Windrush.

Applications are accepted from constituted voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations and statutory bodies such as local authorities and community councils.

Note that funding is not usually available to schools except where the main focus of the project is to benefit the wider community.

Grants of between £300 and £10,000 are available for up to one year.
