The Big Lottery Fund – (BLF) will distribute 50% of the lottery good cause funds in the UK. (N.B. this link and the logo takes you to the U.K. Site). (The Scotland BLF Link is below).
BLF provides funds for projects that have a charitable focus or are connected with Health, Education or the Environment. These are, of course, extremely wide ranging issues and the funding therefore is further focussed through defined programmes. (N.B. Applicant organisations and groups do not require charitable status to apply.)
