National Lottery Community Fund – Global Fund for Children

The National Lottery Community Fund has today announced that it is committing £1.4 million to a new partnership with Global Fund for Children.

The investment will support the co-creation and delivery of the Phoenix Fund, a new black and ethnic minority-led fund, that will support communities and BAME leadership practice in England. Young people from the National Lottery Community Fund’s advisory group will also be involved to help lay strong foundations for future BAME leadership in the sector.

The Phoenix Fund is expected to be launched within weeks to provide emergency funding to support small and micro organisations in communities most affected by COVID-19. More details how to apply will be made available at launch. To read more about the fund click here.
