The new Building Connections Fund has been launched for projects that aim to reduce loneliness and social isolation.
The fund is a partnership between Government, The Big Lottery and the Co-op Foundation and aims to:
- Increase social connections, helping people form strong and meaningful relationships and creating a sense of community and belonging, and helping people feel more connected.
- Support organisations to build on their existing work (by reaching more people, or working in a new area or with a different method or group of people).
- Encourage organisations to join up with others locally and work in partnerships.
- Improve the evidence base and use learning to inform longer term policy and funding decisions.
The fund is valued at 11.5M.
