Big Lottery Fund to change its name and rebrand

The Big Lottery Fund, the UK’s largest funder of charities, will change its name in the new year to the National Lottery Community Fund.

The fund distributes 40 per cent of the good cause money raised by the National Lottery, which last year involved giving £508.5m to 11,000 projects. However its funding has fallen in the last two years, prompting it to cut £130m from future budgets.

The name change will take effect from 30 January next year. The fund will also launch a rebrand at the same point.
