Awards for All will fund a range of projects from improving local spaces to bringing local people together to learn or be more active. We will only pay for Arts, Heritage or Sports activities that meet one or more of our outcomes:

  • people have better chances in life
  • stronger communities
  • improved rural and urban environments
  • healthier and more active people and communities.

Need help? Read our guidance

Any arts, heritage or sports activities that do not meet one or more of our outcomes should apply for funding from another source.
