  • The National Lottery Community Fund - National Lottery Awards for All Scotland

    Created: 21/11/2023
    News/Events Category: Funding and Finance


    National Lottery Awards for All offer funding to support what matters to people and communities. The programme is a partnership between the National Lottery Community Fund Scotland, sportscotland and Creative Scotland. It can fund projects that’ll do at least one of these things:

    • Bring people together to build strong relationships in and across communities
    • Improve the places and spaces that matter to communities
    • Help more people to reach their potential, by supporting them at the earliest possible stage
    • Support people, communities, and organisations facing more demands and challenges because of the cost-of-living crisis

    If you are applying for a project involving the arts, they will prioritise projects that:

    • Engage people from areas of high deprivation
    • Remove financial barriers to access creative activities
    • Address rural isolation and encourage activity in rural areas
    • Engage older people, people in care homes and carers
    • Engage care leavers
    • Support integration of refugees and asylum seekers

    If you are applying for a project focused on sport, they will prioritise projects that:

    • Engage young people from our most deprived areas
    • Engage girls and young women
    • Engage disabled young people

    They are looking for projects that are connected to local people and their communities, and use their existing skills and experience. It is important to involve your community from the start - in the design, development, and delivery of the activities you’re planning.

    Who can apply

    Suitable for voluntary, community or public sector organisations.

    When to apply

    There are no deadlines and applications can be submitted at any time. It will take up to 12 weeks to get a decision.

    How to apply
