Big Lottery’s Reaching Communities Fund re-opens







The Big Lottery Fund has announced that its Reaching Communities Programme has re-opened for applications. Reaching Communities provide grants of over £10,000 to help improve local communities and the lives of people most in need, including hard to reach communities.

Grants will be available for projects that address one or more of the following outcomes:

  • Bring people together and build strong relationships in and across communities
  • Improve the places and spaces that matter to communities
  • Enable more people to fulfil their potential by working to address issues at the earliest possible stage

The grants are open to voluntary and community organisations and social enterprises for up to five years, and can fund activities, operating costs, organisational development and capital costs.

There are no deadlines for applications.

Grant size: Over £10,000
