The Big Lottery Fund has unveiled the BIG Proposals for Northern Ireland, a document that gives details on the types of programmes it hopes to run up until 2012. It builds upon the wide-ranging 'BIG Thinking' consultation carried out last year.
The Big Lottery Fund is asking people to comment on the new proposed priorities which include older people at risk; space and place; younger people at risk and alcohol related harm. The consultation launched on 8 October 2009 and will run until 15 January 2010.
The 'Big Proposals' gives details on how future grant could be developed in the following areas:
- a programme supporting older people worth £10 million;
- a £15 million programme that will fund improvement and activities involving space and place;
- a programme targeting young people at risk worth £10 million; and
- a £5 million programme dealing with alcohol misuse and related harm.
