Supporting people and communities in Northern Ireland to thrive
Author: The National Lottery Community Fund
The National Lottery Community Fund (Formerly The Big Lottery Fund) is the largest distributor of Lottery money to good causes
The National Lottery Community 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, The National Lottery Community 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 National Lottery Community Fund is a non-departmental public body.
