Dear Mr Jones, How can Big Lottery Fund best help communities and people most in need?

From now until July we are inviting people to add their voice to a UK-wide conversation to help us answer this question.

Our mission is at the core of what we do - helping communities and people most in need. But the landscape is changing and we want to know how we should respond.

We are now inviting anyone with a stake in Lottery funding, including grant holders, the voluntary and community sector and the public at large to add their voice to a UK-wide conversation on the future strategic direction of the Big Lottery Fund. Views will help shape our vision and funding strategy between 2015 and 2021.

Please encourage your constituents and voluntary sector groups in your area to have their say on the key areas of Big Lottery Fund’s work via the Your Voice, Our Vision digital platform at You can also follow us on Twitter @blfyourvoice and include #yourvoice in any tweets.

We also welcome views by email to and by post to:
Your Voice Our Vision
Big Lottery Fund
1 Plough Place

The engagement process will run until July 2014 and our new strategic framework will be published by Spring 2015.

Please do contact me if you would like any further information on the Big Lottery Fund and our work in your constituency.

Yours sincerely

Dawn Austwick
Chief Executive
