Building Connections Fund
The Building Connections Fund is a partnership between Government, Big Lottery Fund and the Co-op Foundation which was set up to support projects that are able to prevent or reduce loneliness. It is funding between £30,000 and £10,000 for voluntary or community organisations.
The fund aims to:
- increase social connections, helping people form strong and meaningful relationships and creating a sense of community and belonging, and helping people feel more connected
- support organisations to build on their existing work, e.g. by reaching more people, or working in a new area or with a different method or group of people
- encourage organisations to join up with others locally
- improve the evidence base and use learning to inform longer term policy and funding decisions.
Deadline for applications: Friday 24 August 2018 at 12pm
