Not for profit organisations such as community organisations, charities, schools and social enterprises in England can apply for grants of over £10,000 for up to five years to develop a more strategic approach to improving their community by developing and growing new and existing partnerships. The funding can support many different types of partnership, including cross-sector partnerships; local place-based collaboration; and local and national organisations working together around a particular theme. The grants can be used to fund project activities, operating costs, organisational development and capital costs. A total of £40 million is available this year. The funding is being made available through the Big Lottery Fund’s Partnership Fund and applications can be submitted at any time.
