The National Lottery Community Fund’s Climate Action Fund

The National Lottery Community Fund’s 3rd round of Climate Action Funding is now open with up to £8 million available to community projects across the UK that are focusing on the link between nature and climate.

The funding is aimed at both local partnerships and UK-wide partnerships which are delivered across at least two UK countries (England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales).

They’re looking to fund partnerships that are made up of a mix of organisations from different sectors. They can fund both new partnerships and partnerships that have already been set up.

Full details here.

We encourage you to attend one of the monthly information sessions to explain more about the programme’s criteria and approach.

Information sessions will be held on 26 July, 23 August and 27 September at 12-1pm.

The National Lottery Community Fund Review

Now is the time for a conversation about how The National Lottery Community Fund can best support UK communities to prosper and thrive going forward. As part of their ongoing commitment to putting communities first, The National Lottery Community Fund has launched their Strategic Renewal process to help shape how they invest in communities in the future – and they want you to get involved!

The National Lottery Communities Fund stated in their latest newsletter the reasons why they feel now is the right time for this review.

Thanks to National Lottery players and you, our grant holders, we have made a significant difference to communities, including through the pandemic. Now, as the UK emerges from the pandemic The National Lottery Community Fund has a critical role to play in supporting communities to unleash their energy and potential so they can get to where they want to be. Communities across the UK are facing fresh challenges and opportunities and have new hopes and aspirations. This is an exciting and inspiring time, and we want to hear from you to help us understand how we continue to effectively support communities across the UK.
