Advanced Notice – New Local Connections Fund Launching January
10 Dec 2020 by Libby Mahoney
The Local Connections Fund is a new £4 million fund to help charities and community groups in England that are working to reduce loneliness by helping them build connections across their communities.
The Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS) and The National Lottery Community Fund are investing £2 million each.
This will be used to fund hundreds of ‘microgrants’ between £300 and £2,500, so small, local organisations (with an annual income of £50,000 or less) can bring people and communities together.
The fund opens to applications on the 5th January 2021, to find out more go to The National Lottery’s website by clicking here.
