National Lottery Community Fund
The National Lottery Community Fund is the UK's largest community funder, awarding funds from the National Lottery to projects that bring real improvements to communities.
They believe that people should be in the lead in improving their lives and their communities.
Their approach focuses on the skills, assets and energy that people can draw upon and the potential in their ideas, using these to help build and renew the communities that they live in.
National Lottery Community Fund is a non-departmental public body sponsored by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.
On the 29 January 2019 the Big Lottery Fund became known as The National Lottery Community Fund. This new brand name clearly shows what they do and who they do it for, positioning them as part of The National Lottery family.
Their new brand name does not change their legal status and they remain a corporate body created by and operating under the National Lottery etc Act 1993 as amended. Their legal name also remains the Big Lottery Fund, being the name set out in the National Lottery Act 2006.See more
