|Big Lottery Fund|
The Big Lottery Fund (BIG) is responsible for delivering around half of all funds raised for good causes (14 pence of every pound spent on a Lottery Ticket) by The National Lottery.
Since June 2004, BIG has awarded over £3.6bn to projects supporting health, education, environment and charitable purposes. Most of the funding is awarded to voluntary and community sector organisations.
They deliver funding throughout the UK, mostly through programmes tailored specifically to the needs of communities in England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland as well as some programmes that cover the whole UK.
