BIG Scotland have today opened their new funding programmes. There is £250m available over 5 years, with grants ranging from £10,000 to £1m, and a new streamlined single stage process for grants of up to £150,000.
BIG are pioneering a new approach, asking communities to tell them how what they want to do is ‘people-led, strengths-based and connected’.
The programmes will support community-led activity with funding that will work with communities to bring real improvements to the places they live and the wellbeing of those most in need.
Maureen McGinn, Big Lottery Fund Scotland Chair said, “In these challenging times, we hope this New Lottery money will open the door to support activity which puts people in the lead at the heart of their communities.”
