Big Lottery Fund One to One Sessions

Big Lottery Fund One to One Sessions

Big Lottery Fund is the largest community funder in the UK. Each year we distribute millions of pounds of The National Lottery’s good causes money to community groups and charitable projects around the country. Slieve Gullion District Electoral Area Forum have teamed up with the Big Lottery to provide one to one sessions with representatives from local constituted Community Groups to provide advice on funding opportunities and talk to you about your ideas early on so they can give you the best funding advice.

Booking is Essential
