About Us

We are the largest community funder in the UK - we're proud to award money raised by National Lottery players to communities across the UK. Last year alone we gave out over half a billion pounds (GBP508.5 million) of National Lottery funding to over 11,000 community projects across the UK, enabling even more people and communities to bring their ideas and ambitions to life.

At the heart of everything we do is the belief that when people are in the lead, communities thrive. National Lottery funding is open to everyone and we're privileged to be able to work with the smallest of grassroots groups right up to large UK-wide charities.

We are looking for diverse and talented people who share our values and are passionate about funding great ideas that matter to communities and make a difference to people's lives.
