About Us

Our Aim

 

The aim of The Community Lottery is to create an additional source of local funding that will enable community led organisations to undertake innovative projects that matter to them and make a difference to the communities they serve.

 

We hope that this will increase the range of opportunities community led organisations have to take action to improve the quality of people’s lives in their communities.

Our Values:

 

We care, we share: 

We want to see Everyone win; individuals; good causes, when you win good, causes win and we win

 

We hear, we cheer : 

Send us information about your cause, the resources you lack, or how the funds raised will benefit you to apply eligibility.

 

We see, the opportunity: 

we encourage and champion platforms that develop skills/potential in the community that brings our the best in people

 

We feel, we push for ideals: 

We aim to boost platforms for good causes to excel in their work and truly help the people they serve

 

We build, we aim to fullfill:

Our desire is to be a part of the building blocks of the lives of individuals and good causes, we want to create and celebrate winners now and for the future.

 

 

Who are we?

We are the bridge between the community and the people, we are the eyes, ears and voices of everyday people from all walks of life who wish to fullfill their purpose in serving their communities. We are champions of the underdog; we shine light on good causes that don't get the airtime,  support and recognition they deserve.

 

Our desire to be the bridge of opportunity sits at the very core of our values; bringing people together, individuals and good causes alike fill us with pride, to create a better world, we must start with the community.

 

We are the change we wish to see in our community.

 

What exactly is The Community Lottery

Just like any other lottery, individuals can buy a ticket for £1 in the hope of winning a prize while making a valuable contribution to good causes. Play and help us reach our maximum pilot prize of £25,000

For us, a good cause is one that connects people, places and ideas in ways that promote participation and inclusion, and contribute to resilient and culturally diverse communities that care for each other and the environment 

 

The Community Lottery will launch its monthly lottery on 1st August 2020 with a pilot lottery. For the pilot, a small number of community organisations have agreed to collaborate to launch this exciting funding opportunity Lottery.

 

Following the pilot, funding from our monthly lottery will be made available to community-led organisations that offer projects, activities, resources or services that focus on:

  • Children and Young People 

  • Enhancing the quality of life for elders within communities 

  • Preventing Violence

  • Promoting good mental health

  • Increase use of outdoor spaces

  • Broadening the Horizons of the communities they serve

 

 

Who gets the funding will be decided with the support of local community committees made up of interested community members who will support us to review applications for funding.
