These surgeries are for groups who provide at least 80% of their services to Enfield residents & want to apply for more than £10,000 from The National Lottery Community Fund. If all the appointments are taken before your request, we will offer you an appointment for the next surgery.


Future surgeries are on Wednesday 14th October, Monday 14th December.


You need to provide an outline proposal (max. 1 side of A4) for discussion at an appointment.

National Lottery Community Fund funding decisions will prioritise funding for groups best placed to support their communities during this emergency  until September.


The Lottery want to hear from

  • groups whose ability to support vulnerabe people has been affected.

  • groups with 'lived experience' of the crisis ("People in the Lead")


Organisations already in receipt of pre-COVID19 Lottery funding can apply as long as the new work relates to COVID19 and can't be paid for with existing funding.

Funding is for a maximum of 6 months and must relate to immediate challenges.

Last chance to apply will be in September.
