The National Lottery Community Fund: Yorkshire and Humber funding ecology research

This research is intended to increase the knowledge of the ‘funding ecology’ specifically within the Yorkshire and Humber region, with the following three purposes:

  1. Give understanding to the National Lottery Community Fund and locally based grant-making trusts about how and where their combined funding is distributed within the region
  2. Use this understanding to approach local authorities and other local public sector bodies (Police and Crime Commissioners, Fire and Rescue Authorities, CCGs) to use independent funding to complement other support to the VCS
  3. Raise awareness amongst larger national charitable trusts and foundations about the make up of their funding in Yorkshire and Humber, including any gaps or lack of weighting towards the region.
