Meet the Funder @CVA

The National Lottery Community Fund, The Lloyds Bank Foundation and The Childhood Trust are coming to CVA on 22 January 2020.

This is a great opportunity to come and hear direct from them during an interactive event at CVA!

The day will start at 10.15am with presentations and a question and answer session - this session is open to all.  Book here


Groups with a detailed finalised draft project proposal can book a 1:2:1 session with each of the funders from 12,30 - 4.00pm. There is only space for 10 groups to be seen (5 per funder) so advanced booking is ESSENTIAL.  Places are offered on a first come first served basis. To register your group for a 1:2:1 session please email by 16th December 2019.

Information about the funders: 

The National Lottery Community Fund (TNLCF); how can The National Lottery Community Fund help you to make a difference in your community?

  • TNLCF 'Reaching Communities and Partnerships' funding streams are for proposals over £10,000. Reaching Communities and Partnerships offer flexible funding for up to 5 years for organisations in England that want to take action on the issues that matter to people and communities.
  • Reaching Communities offers funding for individual organisations. We also recognise a lot of people want to work together to achieve their goals which is where Partnerships funding can help – Partnerships funding is for people who want to work and develop ideas together with others, to start with the bigger picture and share responsibility in order to achieve shared objectives. Further information can be found at

The Lloyds Bank Foundation for England and Wales works with registered charities (with an income of between £25,000 and £1m) who are working directly with people experiencing complex social issues, helping them to achieve positive lasting change.

There are two campaigns through the year: the Summer Give (for projects taking place during any school holidays) and the Christmas Challenge (for projects throughout the year). Charities must have an income of at least £25,000. To find out more, please visit their website:
