Putting Communities First

Let's talk.

Now is the time for a conversation about how The National Lottery Community Fund can best support UK communities to prosper and thrive.


As part of our commitment to putting communities first we’re renewing our UK-wide strategy – and we want you to get involved.

Communities across the UK are facing fresh challenges and opportunities and have new hopes and aspirations. We want you to help us better understand what these are and how we might support them.

This is an exciting and inspiring time to shape the future of how we invest in communities. We intend to do this by learning, exploring and building big ideas.

Thanks to National Lottery players, our grant holders and partners, we’ve made a significant difference to communities, including through the pandemic.

Now we need your help. We want to ensure that we are using all of our resources to be the best we can be. We want to ensure that we remain relevant, responsive and supportive to the communities we serve.

We want you to connect us with your networks and communities, so we can directly listen and learn about what communities want. Share your insights to help us, and the support we provide, remain fit and future-focused.

Share your research, insights and ideas with us by emailing puttingcommunitiesfirst@tnlcommunityfund.org.uk

We want to know what you think.
