National Lottery Community Fund: Reaching Communities Masterclass - Postponed

Reaching Communities is arguably the most important voluntary sector grants programme operating today. Competition for funding from The Lottery has never been greater. Learn how to use your development time wisely and tailor your submission to make your bid stand out from the crowd.

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 emergency, all LCVS training and events scheduled to take place before the end of April have now been postponed. We are currently exploring alternative training delivery methods. We will continue to monitor the situation and issue regular updates.

This training is delivered by the LCVS funding advisor John McCormack. In 2018 John worked with numerous groups, helping to secure over £1.7million in Reaching Communities funding. During the session he will take you through the steps required to plan and prepare a strong submission, taking into account BLF’s updated process that was introduced in April 2017.

In particular, you will learn:

  • the language of the Lottery, the various application submission options and how to package and present your project
  • to make the best use of the information you have collected, to design and develop your proposal
  • how to evidence need and define project outcomes
  • to understand key considerations in the development of your budget
  • techniques for producing a high quality funding application

If you are looking to identify and progress with large scale project development bid submissions to the Big Lottery Reaching Communities Fund, this training is for you.

If you are new to project development and bid writing, we recommend that you attend our Introduction to Fundraising training first. That session is taking place on Thursday 13 February 2020 - click here to visit the Introduction t o Fundraising page. If you have missed it, contact our Capacity Building team to arrange a meeting.

Please note: all of our funder specific masterclasses have been designed using our in-house experience of working with applicants to prepare and submit successful bids to the referenced funder. In the 2018/19 period, this experience enabled us to secure over £5m of funding for community projects. Where content includes specific input from the funder, this will be explicitly referenced in the description of the training session.
