Voluntary and community organisations, charities, schools, and statutory bodies in England have the opportunity to apply for grants of up to £10,000 per year for up to five years to the National Lottery Community Fund’s Partnership Fund.

This funding aims to help local organisations develop a more strategic approach to improving their community through developing and growing new and existing partnerships with other organisations. This can be area-based partnerships or communities of interest.

The funding is available to build strong relationships, improve community spaces, and help individuals reach their full potential. The funding will support the development of new and existing partnerships, and help organizations address pressing issues such as the cost-of-living crisis and recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The grants can be used for project activities, operating costs, organisational development, and capital costs.

The Fund will support ideas that align with their three funding priorities:

  • bringing people together,
  • improving community spaces,
  • helping individuals reach their full potential.

Applications can be submitted at any time.
