The Leaders with Lived Experience 2020 Programme provides National Lottery grants of between £20,000 and £50,000 to support charities, voluntary and community groups run by people with first-hand experience of a social issue to share those experiences and play a key role in shaping how communities move towards recovery and renewal after the impact of COVID-19.
This funding will support lived experience leadership, and make sure lived experience plays a key role in shaping how communities move towards recovery and renewal after the impact of COVID-19.
Funding is available for up to two years and can be used to either focus on the immediate response to the COVID-19 crisis, or help communities recover, renew and become more sustainable after the impact of COVID-19, or both.
The National Lottery Community Fund expects to fund between 30 and 40 projects.
The programme will fund a wide range of items including:
• one-off events,
• staff and training costs,
• transport, utilities/running costs,
• volunteer expenses.
The deadline for applications is 5pm on the 13th October 2020.
The application form is available on the National Lottery Community Fund website – https://www.tnlcommunityfund.org.uk/funding/programmes/leaders-with-lived-experience-2020
