Purpose: Reaching Communities funding from the Big Lottery Fund is for projects that help people and communities most in need. Projects can be new or existing, or be the core work of your organisation. Applications to the fund must achieve one of four outcomes, one of which is healthier and more active people and communities.
The Reaching Communities programme has two strands: Reaching Communities revenue and small capital – funding from £10,000 to £500,000 for revenue projects and/or smaller capital projects up to £50,000.
Funding can last for up to 5 years.
Reaching Communities Buildings – funding of between £100,000 and £500,000 for large capital projects.
