  • National Lottery Awards for All Scotland

    Created: 01/08/2017

    Awards for All has been updated including being renamed as National Lottery Awards for All Scotland.
    The fund still aims to support great community, arts and sports projects across the country, but there is a new application process which includes fewer questions and successful organisations will receive funding more quickly, with payment being made within two weeks of notification of successful applications.
    What other changes/differences will there be?

    • New minimum request – funding can be for between £300 and £10,000 (rather than £500 to £10,000);
    • If an application is successful, the organisation will receive an unconditional offer. This means some more information will be requested up front to include a bank statement and signature;
    • The ‘£75,000 land/building rule’ is being removed and there will be no total project cost limit when an organisation applies for land and/or building work;
    • New organisations (no more than 15 months) don’t need to provide a financial projection. On the application form they can put ‘0’;
    • Only two unrelated committee/board members are required instead of the current minimum of three;
    • More flexibility on projects running for slightly longer than 12 months;
    • Second hand vehicles will now be considered;
    • The main application contact can now be 16 plus (the legal contact still have to be 18 plus);
    • A landline phone number will no longer be needed/preferred.
