A very Happy New Year from all at the Big Lottery Fund Scotland!
Our BIG Advice team in Scotland has already been fielding lots of enquiries from customers new and old in our first few days back in the office after a well earned break.
However, we thought we would save you some time and effort by highlighting your top 3 most-asked questions from last year:
Q: Can we get grants form more than one Big Lottery Fund programme at a time?
A: Yes! – so long as your applications are for different costs or projects. If you aren’t sure, get in touch.
Q: What is the deadline for Awards for All / Celebrate / 2014 Communities / Young Start?
A: There isn’t one – they run on a rolling basis, so you can apply at any time*. The Celebrate fund will be closing down in December 2014, but you can apply any time up to then.
* the same applies to Investing in Ideas, Communities and Families Fund and Investing in Communities – but we aren’t asked about those so often!
Q: Why won’t the application form save my answers?
A: Download the latest version of Adobe reader and try again – this usually fixes the issue. If this doesn’t work, just get in touch
If you have any questions that you think could make the 2014 list, we look forward to hearing from you!
