As an organisation that supports community groups and charities, we wanted to let you know about the changes so that you can continue to provide advice and support to organisations in your area.  

 Organisations can now:   

  • apply for up to £20,000 in a single award; 
  • apply for funding for up to two years; 
  • no longer hold more than one National Lottery Awards for All grant at a time. 

 This change to the upper limit on National lottery Awards for All is to give projects more financially stability, long term certainty and an increase in accessible funding.  

 Organisations can apply online as usual. It usually takes 12 weeks to assess and pay successful applicants. A completed application made today will typically be awarded at the start of February 2024.  

 Please note that from today, organisations can only have one National Lottery Awards for All grant at a time. This means if an organisation received funding before 15 November, it will not be able to apply for more funding until the project is complete. 

 One of the impacts of this change is that with the maximum grant amount increasing, we may not be able to support the same number of projects within our budget. We strongly encourage organisations to consider their budget closely and ask for what they need for their specific project. This will help us maximise the number of communities we can support under the refreshed programme.

Natural Resources Wales has teamed up with Coventry University to encourage people out into the beautiful Welsh countryside and to find out what stops them from going.

Some of the feedback we’ve had is that people are worried about livestock in open spaces.  What to do if you see a herd of cows, for instance?  What to do if you are walking your dog?  Hence, we’ve asked PONT (Pori Natur A Threftadaeth) to deliver some training for us that addresses some of these issues.

This free 2-hour online training course is designed to help you feel comfortable in the countryside and to advise others you might also see this as a challenge.

The first session is Friday 17th November at 10am with more sessions to follow.
