UK online centres' funding alerts

November 2011


Anne Faulkner

There are some fantastic new funding opportunities to bring to your attention this month. The Big Lottery Fund are launching a further 17m worth of new grants as well as offering up to 10,000 to 1000 of their most successful current grant holders, which could be a great opportunity for your centre. Do read on below.

I’m pleased to say that one UK online centre has already continued the fantastic work it’s been doing for over ten years thanks to a Big Lottery grant. Alan Tapp from Kensington Community Learning Centre in Liverpool told us what a difference the grant had made to their centre and also had some great tips for making funding bids. You can read more about their story on our website here.

As ever, we’re really keen to hear if you’re successful applying for any of the below opportunities, so do email ukonlinecentres@ufi.com with your stories.

Best wishes

Big Lottery

Big Lottery has made 17m available to fund an additional 650 charitable and community projects through its two main open grants programmes, ‘Reaching Communities’ and ‘Awards for All’. The grants are designed to help meet increased demand for support from communities and individuals most in need.

Big Lottery will also be offering up to 10,000 to almost 1,000 existing Big Lottery grant holders to support the last 18 months of their projects and help them develop a sustainable operating model.

Projects that are having a particularly significant impact could also receive an additional year’s worth of funding to continue their projects and carry out plans to make them more sustainable. This funding has an open deadline and you can find out more here.

Nominet Trust 250,000 Challenge

Nominet Trust are launching their 250,000 Challenge which aims to support projects that work with over 65s to address the social problems facing older people using the internet.

Successful projects will be expected to design new and better ways for older people to access the internet using developing technologies that have aspects familiar to older people, such as IPTV or internet radio.

The deadline for the first stage of applications is the 1 February 2012. If you have a good idea for an internet start up you can find out more about this grant here.

Communitybuilders fund

Last week, Communitybuilders announced a scheme to make sustainable investments in community enterprises. It aims to ensure their long term financial viability and increase their ability to deliver significant social impact in their communities.

The fund will initially support six projects which are unique in their offering to local communities, helping long-term regeneration, with an award of up to 750,000.

Completed applications should be submitted by the 9 December and you can find out more about Communitybuilders here.

‘Millennium Now’ is awarding five large grants to organisations willing to be filmed for a new Channel 4 documentary series.

If you help disadvantaged families to be healthy, help different generations share skills, bring communities together to tackle local issues or provide career based skills to young people, you could apply.

Applications should be submitted by 2pm on Tuesday 13 December 2011. Find out more here.
