Grants made in London N1 2011-2012

william perrin made this Freedom of Information request to The National Lottery Community Fund

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Big Lottery Fund,

I should be grateful for a list of grants made by BIG and it's associated bodies to applicants in the London N1 postal area in FY 2011-2012 presented electronically as open data.

Given the special status afforded to the lottery and its distributers in law there is substantial public interest in transparency in your grant making. In particular I have been heavily involved in community work in London N1 over the years and it would be especially interesting to see where lottery money has been spent so that parties on the ground can assess the impact it might have made and work out where to apply for more if needed. Also the publication of BIGs grants would help other philanthropists and grant makers target their support more efficiently.

I am not sure how you hold your data but i expect it held in electronic form and so the marginal cost of publishing should be low. If it is possible within cost limits i should also be interested in historic data for the above area for the last three FYs.

Again, as i don't know how you store your data i am not sure what you can easily yield up, but i should be interested in the name of the grantee body, its address, the broad purpose of the grant and the amount granted.

If you can only respond to this request in part please feel free to do so rather than rejecting the whole request outright. Also I should be grateful to receive the information in electronic form (as open data as above).

If i can help you fulfil your obligations under law by clarifying this request then please don't hesitate to contact me through this FOI service.

Yours faithfully,

william perrin
