Without the much-needed financial support from the National Lottery Community fund, this project may not have been possible, so a special thanks to the community fund for supporting this revolutionary project. The National Lottery Community Fund, legally named the Big Lottery Fund, is a non-departmental public body responsible for distributing funds raised by the National Lottery for “good causes”. Since 2004 it has awarded over £9 billion to more than 130,000 projects in the UK, The National Lottery Community Fund distributes over £600million a year to communities across the UK, raised by players of The National Lottery. For supporting this project, making the community voice heard and celebrating our diversity and shared values, The Unity in The Community Team would like to thank the National Lottery Community Fund!
