New Lottery Programme Announced: Our Environment, Our Future


The Big Lottery Fund has announced their intention to launch a new £30 million UK wide funding programme, Our Environment, Our Future.

The new programme will support projects enabling young people (11-24) to improve their local environment and increase their employability. At this stage BIG are looking for a partner organisation or partnership to run the programme. The fund will then open to applications next year. Not much has been announced about how it will be run yet but early indications are that it will fund a small number of larger demonstration projects.

If any South West organisations are thinking of applying for this, or existing Lottery funded programmes, SERIO are happy to advise on evaluation and monitoring to help strengthen the bid. Just contact us on 01752 555942 to discuss.
