There have been some big changes to the way that the Big Lottery Fund organises its funding lately.
We were particularly interested to hear about their medium community-led grants. It is an exciting opportunity for communities that want to develop their own solutions.
The focus on people-led, connected, strengths-based approaches feels like a really positive move. And we are delighted to learn that the main aim of the fund is “to improve the wellbeing of those most in need“.
We caught up with Isla from Big Lottery Fund to ask more about what they mean by wellbeing and to find out more about how to apply.
It seems like the funding could make a real difference. You can listen to the interview here.
