Community Led

A National Lottery Community Fund programme offering grants from £10,001 to £150,000 to support communities to improve the places in which they live and the wellbeing of those most in need.

We will fund organisations to deliver work that achieves the following outcomes:

  • Everyone in the community has the opportunity to influence and get involved in community-led activity.
  • People in the community are better connected and work together to improve their wellbeing.

Your organisation should have a governing body, such as a committee or board which includes at least three unrelated people and a written governing document, such as a constitution. This governing document should make it clear that your organisation has:

  • a social purpose – your organisation must have a clearly stated purpose which benefits the local area in some way
  • open membership – everyone living in the area should be able to get involved in your organisation and the work that it does
  • community control – the majority of people serving on your governing body are from the local area and make the decisions.
