Big Lottery Fund Awarding
Sincere Support is delighted to announce that we have been chosen to receive a £10’000 Big Lottery Fund award.
The Big Lottery Fund (BIG) is responsible for distributing 40 per cent of all funds raised for good causes (about 11 pence of every pound spent on a Lottery ticket) by the National Lottery. This totals around £600 million each year.
Since June 2004 BIG has awarded over £6bn to projects supporting health, education, environment and charitable purposes. 80-90 per cent of our 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.
The funding will enable us to up-skill our volunteer force with training based around First aid, Safeguarding children/vulnerable adults and Counselling.
