Big Lottery Fund and Heritage Lottery Fund Announce Name Changes

The Big Lottery Fund will now be known as The National Lottery Community Fund, and the Heritage Lottery Fund is now called the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

As part of their rebrand, both have changed their logos to use the crossed fingers of the National Lottery and refreshed their websites.

The Fund says that it expects the old logo will still be used for some time by many small grassroots groups who have received lottery funding for their projects and use the logo on their print materials. It has communicated to groups to support them in updating digital materials and to reassure them that they can continue to use previously printed materials or merchandise until they are ready to order new ones.

The National Lottery Community Fund (Big Lottery Fund) grant schemes remain unchanged.

The Awards for All grants programme is now called the National Lottery Awards for All and remains open for applications on a rolling basis.
