Big Lottery Fund would like to encourage groups from Knowsley to apply for their Awards for All funding and are offering 121 sessions and support to interested groups from across Knowsley.

Every year the Big Lottery Fund gives out millions of pounds from the National Lottery to good causes. Applying for funding can be daunting, but they are here to enable you to get funding for the things that matter to your community.

Do you fit the following description?

  • You are a voluntary and community organisation, a not for profit organisation including social enterprises and CIC’s, parish or town council or health body.


  • You meet one of their priorities: bring people together and build strong relationships in and across communities, improve the places and spaces that matter to communities, enable more people to fulfil their potential by working to address issues at the earliest possible stage.


  • You are NEW to Big Lottery Fund (have not applied previously) or have done but have not been successful and would welcome some 121 support and guidance.
