The National Lottery Community Fund - Bringing People Together


Bringing People Together funding can support projects that will build stronger connections across communities, and improve the infrastructure and conditions that are needed to strengthen these connections.

They are interested in:

  • bold and experimental responses to bringing people together using new, or new combinations of approaches
  • new projects or projects that build on existing work
  • a range of projects reflecting a mix of communities and places from across the UK.

This is funding from the  UK Portfolio. The UK Portfolio explores new approaches, experiment with how to do things differently, and look to fund work that is more future focussed.
