This is the second round of the Local Connections Fund, designed to help small charities and community groups working to reduce loneliness by building community connections across England.
WHAT: Grants of between £300 and £2500 are available to small, local organisations (with an income below £50,000). The funding is aimed at bringing people together in safe and secure ways, making people aware of what services are available to reduce loneliness and to build lasting connections.
Organisations can still apply, even if they already have existing grants with The National Lottery Community Fund. You cannot apply for costs that have been funded by other means, including Government or National Lottery funding.
If you received funding in Round 1, you will not be eligible for funding in Round 2.
