The National Lottery has announced changes to the way it provides funds in a bid to make the process easier and more effective.
They have nearly tripled the number of staff they have across England, and they will be working more closely with communities that they support.
This means that organisations applying for funds will have the same local point of contact throughout their application.
They are also moving away from standardised application forms so that they can best focus on supporting the best ideas, not the people who are best at completing forms.
Ideas can be submitted online, by phone or in person.
3 types of funding is being offered:
National Lottery Awards for All:
The National Lottery Awards for All scheme offers funding from £300 to £10,000 to support what matters to people and communities.
Reaching Communities offers grants of over £10,000 to support single organisations with great ideas that enable communities to thrive.
The Partnerships funding provides grants of over £10,000 for groups or organisations who have great ideas to do amazing things together.
