About this fund

Social connections and community activities are at the heart of creating healthier, happier lives and a flourishing society. That’s why we support amazing community-led projects.

We can fund projects that’ll do at least one of these things:

  • bring people together to build strong relationships in and across communities
  • improve the places and spaces that matter to communities
  • help more people to reach their potential, by supporting them at the earliest possible stage
  • support people, communities and organisations facing more demands and challenges because of the cost-of-living crisis.

You can apply for funding to deliver a new or existing activity or to support your organisation to change and adapt to new and future challenges.

We work in partnership with sportscotland and Creative Scotland to deliver some of the National Lottery Awards for All funding. So for projects based in Scotland, we can offer:

Funding for community-led projects

  • We offer funding from £300 to £20,000. And can support your project for up to 2 years.

Funding for arts and sports projects

  • We offer funding from £300 to £10,000. And can support your project for up to 12 months.
  • We run this funding in partnership with sportscotland and Creative Scotland.
