The Growing Great Ideas programme has a focus on supporting transformational and long-term change. The National Lottery Community Fund is looking for visionary initiatives that go beyond individual organisations, and instead focus on ecologies, platforms, ecosystems, assemblages, networks and constellations. These initiatives are expected to be generating an infrastructure through which many things are possible.
The National Lottery Community Fund is looking to invest in different combinations of people, communities, networks and organisations that demonstrate an ability to seed and grow alternative systems, accelerate the deep transition of 21st-century civil society, and to learn and adapt as they go.
At application stage, the National Lottery Community Fund is interested in hearing about your ideas and plans, rather than a detailed project description.
The minimum grant size is £150,000. The minimum length is two years. Funding can be available for up to ten years in some circumstances.
There is a total of £25m available for this programme until March 2022.
