Big Lottery Reaching Communities

Support offered


Are you planning to apply for funding from the Big Lottery Reaching Communities programme?
Sobus are organising one to one sessions with an advisor from the Big Lottery Fund to provide advice and feedback on project ideas or draft application forms.

The sessions are open to any voluntary or community organisation operating primarily for residents of the borough of Hammersmith and Fulham.

If you would like a slot please complete this pre-advice questionnaire as well as this proposal form (or if you have already completed a first stage application form you can send this instead).

Please return them to by 30th April 2015.

Once enough proposals/applications have been received two dates, a week apart will be chosen for the sessions and we will get back to you to arrange your time slot.

What is Reaching Communities?
Reaching Communities is a grant fund of £10,000 upwards to fund projects that meet one or more of the following outcomes:

  • People have better chances in life, with better access to training and development to improve their life skills,
  • Stronger communities, with more active citizens, working together to tackle their problems,
  • Improved rural and urban environments, which communities are better able to access and enjoy,
  • Healthier and more active people and communities

Please ensure your project is eligible before applying to attend a support session. You can read more about the fund here.
