The National Lottery Community Fund: Partnerships

National Lottery

The National Lottery Community Fund’s Partnerships programme awards grants over £10,000 to charities, voluntary and community groups, social enterprises, schools and town/parish councils who share responsibility and influence with others, who have a shared set of goals and values, and achieve their mission by starting with the bigger picture rather than just what their organisation can do on its own. Unincorporated groups will be considered, funds are expected to be used to incorporate and, where appropriate, register as a charity.

Grants are awarded for up to five years and can be used to fund project activities, operating costs, organisational development and capital costs. Funding can support many different types of partnership, including:

  • cross-sector partnerships
  • local place-based collaboration
  • local and national organisations working together around a particular theme.

Applications must demonstrate how your ideas will make positive changes in your community. Current project priorities are:

  • 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.

Applications must also demonstrate:

  • You developed your idea by involving the people who will benefit
  • You’ll support what’s already working well
  • You can test new approaches
  • You understand the existing activities and services that do similar work
  • You’re committed to equalities and the environment

Deadline: Continuous rolling programme.
