UK online centres' funding alerts

December 2011


Anne Faulkner

In the current environment, charitable and third sector organisations all over the country are finding it more and more difficult to find all the funding they need to maintain the fantastic work they do. That’s why organisations such as the Big Lottery Fund are so valuable.

The Big Lottery (BIG) is responsible for delivering almost half of all the money raised for good causes by The National Lottery, and since 2004 they’ve awarded over 3.6 billion in grants, mostly to voluntary and community sector organisations.

There are almost thirty individual programmes that BIG administrates but this week we’re featuring three with approaching application deadlines that we think could be really useful sources of funding for many of you.

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

Wishing you an enjoyable Christmas break and a happy and successful 2012.
