National Lottery – Awards for All – Small Grants – ongoing



Awards for All is a small grants programme delivered and funded by the Big Lottery Fund in Northern Ireland.

The main aim of the programme is to bring real improvements to communities and to the lives of people most in need by funding projects which involve people in their communities, bringing them together to enjoy a wide range of charitable, community, educational, environmental and health-related activities.

We want our money to make a difference by helping:

  • people to participate in their communities to bring about positive change
  • people to develop their skills and widen their experiences
  • people to work toward better and safer communities
  • improve people’s physical and mental health and well being.

We hope these awards will improve people’s lives and will strengthen community activity.

Full details on how to apply are contained in the guidance notes. The guidance notes and application form can be downloaded from this webpage
