Applicants for funding from The National Lottery Community Fund (formerly the Big Lottery Fund) often name their main office as their project delivery location. A high proportion of charities are based in cities and towns, in this instance Nottingham or Sheffield, or have their main office in London, but deliver activity and services to a much wider area. This means figures often don’t reflect the spread of activity and the overall offer of services and projects funded by The National Lottery Community Fund within a particular area.
We have included figures for the last five years as this better reflects the investment in the area over this time frame.
