Awards for All

Awards for All

For the last six months, the Big Lottery Fund (BIG) has been running a pilot in the West Midlands region giving groups the opportunity to apply for repeat and on-going activities under Awards for All, which was due to close. Due to the success of this pilot BIG has decided to roll out this pilot across the whole of England until 31 March 2013. Previously Awards for All did not fund on-going, regular or repeat activities, as the programme has focused on ‘new’ project ideas. However, in these challenging times BIG are increasingly aware of the pressures smaller groups face with rising costs and cuts to funding, and want to respond to this by looking at alternative ways of funding projects that support those most in need. The relaxation of this criteria will apply to all projects where the applicant has an income of less than (or equal to) £30,000 according to their latest accounts.
