National Lottery Awards For All Sessions

CultureDale, VSI Alliance and The National Lottery Community Fund are delivering two sessions to support not-for-profit groups to apply to Awards for All England.



Each session will enable you to find out more about the programme, eligibility, and the application process from The National Lottery Community Fund and then make an application with the support of VSI Alliance and CultureDale.

The session will include presentations and there will be time to ask questions about the scheme and your proposal. Afterwards, there will be an opportunity to talk to the CultureDale and VSI Alliance team about your project and receive support with your application.

Who is this session for?

This session is for voluntary or community organisations seeking funding between £300 to £20,000, for up to two years, to deliver activity as part of the CultureDale 2024 Year of Culture. It is aimed primarily at groups with smaller incomes who are looking to improve their local community.
