The National Lottery Community Fund (NLCF), the largest community funder in the UK, has published its new Corporate Plan covering the next three years (2024 -2027). The plan sets out ‘ambitious targets’ to deliver on its strategy to support what matters most to communities across the UK.

The NLCF aims to distribute at least a further £4 billion by 2030 to support activities that create resilient communities that are more inclusive and environmentally sustainable – activities that will strengthen society and improve lives across the UK.

Key points include:
More than 50% of all grants will go to communities experiencing greatest poverty and disadvantage.
At least 15% of funding will go to projects that have environmental sustainability as their primary aim.
The largest expansion of grassroots funding in three decades, with a target of reaching more than 80% of areas across the UK.
The National Lottery Awards for All small grants programme will include piloting a £50,000 grant award.
The primary focus of more than 90% of grants is on one of four community-led missions:
Supporting communities to come together.
Be environmentally sustainable.
Help children and young people thrive.
Enable people to lead healthier lives.
New funding portfolios will be launched in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, complemented by a UK-wide portfolio in 2024.

The National Lottery Community Fund’s Corporate Strategy 2024-2027 can be found on the NLCF website https://www.tnlcommunityfund.org.uk/media/documents/corporate-documents/Corporate-Plan-2024-27.pdf?utm_source=ceo_linkedin&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=corporate_plan_24
