After listening to applicants and stakeholders, BIG’s Supporting 21st Century Life investment area has been broadened. This investment area is part of the Investing in Communities programme and the revisions make it more inclusive and accessible.
All projects which previously fitted the investment area under the current round of the programme will still be appropriate for this funding. However, we expect to receive a broader range of applications from projects that build stronger families and communities.
Supporting 21st Century Life aims to improve quality of life by helping families most in need to deal with the challenges of family life; intervening early to prevent poverty and disadvantage and giving children better opportunities.
If you think your project might be eligible you can find the revised guidance here http://www.biglotteryfund.org.uk/prog_supporting_21st_century_life
