The Big Lottery Fund, part of the National Lottery funds for good causes has just announced that it is to invest £5 million in helping families cope with the after effects of the UK recession, helping communities back onto their feet after the onslaught. The cash, which will go to existing grant holders will help working with people and communities in the most need due to the recession.
The Big Lottery Fund is the largest distributor of National Lottery good causes funding and is responsible for the distribution of more than half of money for good causes from National Lottery funding.
The cash is designed to help people who are finding it difficult to make ends meet during the recession particularly those who are concerned about their jobs or seeking employment. The recession has had a devastating effect on families around the UK and triggered many social issues which this lotto cash should help to counteract.
The investment will target many areas in the project including support for families, mediation, advice and counselling and practical and parenting support for people affected by the recession.
With 23p in every pound spent when people buy lottery tickets going towards good causes in the UK, it allows projects such as this one to be set up. Truly doing what the National Lottery promised from the start and helping people and communities throughout the UK by injecting cash into local projects and making a real difference in people’s lives.
