I saw recently a few people highlighting on-going success in regards to getting Big Lotto (Awards for all) funding. Can folks give some pointers in how they fulfil the following requirement from Lotto:
"It’s important to us that you involve your community in the design, development and delivery of the activities you’re planning, so please tell us how you have done this. We believe this will help your project to be better supported by the energy and strengths that exist within your community and it is more likely to be successful as a result. By community, we mean people living in your local area, people who share a common interest, or people who experience similar barriers or issues".
Success for the award in the last 6 or so months seems to be down and is currently only at 37%. The following statement highlights the importance of involving the community:
" At 37%, the success rate for [National Lottery Awards for All Scotland] has fallen again recently. This is due to another increase in the number of applications we’ve received over the last three months. This makes it all the more important to make sure your community is involved in the design and delivery of the work you want us to fund – as this is one of the most important factors in improving your chances."
Any help is appreciated as I would like to submit an application ASAP for a project we have in mind to modernise classroom/ learning in the Sqn
