National Lottery Community Fund
The National Lottery Community Fund is a non-departmental public body responsible for distributing funds rased by the National Lottery for "good causes". Since 2004 it has awarded over £9 billionto more than 130,000 projects in the UK. The Community Fund aims to support projects which help communities and people it considers most in need.
We have been extremely grateful to the National Lottery for supporting and funding the Asian Association of Chesterfield and North Derbyshire in June 2019. The grant of £134,227 over three years was awarded towards the Way Forward-support with operation and development costs for the organisation. The Way Forward proposal aimed to enable greater accessibility to the Association by being able to open three days a week and allow the Association to initiate plans for longer term activities and support services to provide sustained benefits to the communities.
We wish to thank the National Lottery Community Fund for making our dream into reality. We are eager to continue working with them and provide continued support to our communities.
