Support for the Voluntary and Community Sector

BIG Lottery has now appointed VAAC to support  organisations to understand the opportunities available through ESIF. The BIG Lottery is planning to match fund a large proportion of the thematic objective aiming to Promote Social Inclusion and Combat Poverty. Whilst work under this theme is open to organisations across all sectors, it is seen as a really great opportunity for the work of the Voluntary and Community Sector to play to its strengths to deliver great outcomes for the people most in need and furthest away from the labour market.

In order to support voluntary and community organisations VAAC are working with partners from other infrastructure organisations across the LEP area to give advice and information about the BIG Lottery programme. The table below lists our partners and gives the best person to contact in each area for more information.
