What to do if you’re unable to accept money from the National Lottery

If you’re unable to accept lottery funding for any reasons, please upload a letter with your application explaining why this is the case. If your application is successful, we will try and fund your project from money we receive from other sources.


This Fund will open on Friday 29 May 2020.
