We are really pleased that Stephna Davis-Watts, Policy and Partnership Officer at the Big Lottery Fund is coming to the Ashley Centre, Stoke on February 5th.
Initially the Big lottery were reluctant to come to the University as they equated it entirely with research related work – we have persuaded them otherwise.
We have asked Stephna to make a presentation on the current opportunities for large project funding from the Big lottery and to discuss large project ideas with colleagues in the university and with partner organisations.
We are inviting colleagues from across the university in areas of interest that the Big Lottery can fund; these include
- Low carbon
- The Environment
- Creative communities
- Community engagement
- Arts and creative technologies
- Physical activity
- Mental health
- Public health
- Social enterprise
The Big lottery is geared towards partnership funding – you could use the event to scope out a project idea with a group of partners –with a Big lottery expert on hand – if there are individuals you would like us to invite as well do let us know.
