The Big Lottery Fund is the largest distributor of Lottery money to good causes
The Big Lottery Fund is responsible for delivering around half of all funds raised for good causes (14 pence of every pound spent on a Lottery Ticket) by The National Lottery.
Since June 2004, Big Lottery Fund has awarded over £3.6bn to projects supporting health, education, environment and charitable purposes. Most of our funding is awarded to voluntary and community sector organisations.
We deliver funding throughout the UK, mostly through programmes tailored specifically to the needs of communities in England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland as well as some programmes that cover the whole UK.
The Big Lottery Fund is a non-departmental public body
