The National Lottery’s Big Lottery Fund has released details of where a lot of the recent good causes funding has been distributed. The National Lottery has announced the recipients of more than £52 million worth of lottery funding in the UK and Northern Ireland.

185 organisations and charities were named as benefitting from the handouts with the priority focussing on local and community youth projects as part of the Big Lottery Funds Young People’s Fund 2 programme. At a time of nationwide economic hardship with more young people being both out of work and education the Big Lottery Fund has decided to give young people the opportunity to create and operate activities that will benefit them in their local area.

Over 1 million under 25’s are currently unemployed in the UK and these activities offer hope and opportunity for them, assisting them to learn new skills and increase their chances of finding employment or suitable training. Groups who have received funding include; Maidstone Youth Forum, Birmingham’s Sound It Out community music scheme and the Holt Youth Project. In a comforting way the National Lottery’s Big Lottery Fund offers you a consolation prize of sorts, because if you don’t win the jackpot at least you know some of your money will assist others.
