Dear National Lottery Commission,
In the past 5 years how much funding has the national lottery gave the Yemeni Community Association in Eccles (Greater Manchester)
What was the funding for?
Dear Mr Tumulty
The Commission is responsible for licensing and regulating the National Lottery and ensuring that funds are raised for good causes. However, we do not distribute those funds.
There are various distribution bodies, established by parliament, which are responsible for awarding lottery grants. The Department for Culture, Media and Sport oversees these funding bodies.
You can find information on these bodies and funding on the website for lottery funding www.lotteryfunding.org.uk or by calling 0845 275 0000.
In addition, there are many government schemes, trusts and foundations that provide funding for specific causes. The lottery funding website also has information on other funding organisations that may be able to help you. Alternatively, you may wish to check with your local authority about current grant schemes.
The total amounts raised for good causes can be found in quarterly reports and also in our annual reports via the following links:
I hope that this information is helpful.
If you are unhappy with the service you have received in relation to your request and wish to make a complaint or request a review of our decision, you should write to Mark Harris, Chief Executive, National Lottery Commission, 4th floor, Victoria Square House, Victoria Square, Birmingham, B2 4BP.
If you are not content with the outcome of your complaint, you may apply directly to the Information Commissioner (ICO) for a decision. Generally, the ICO cannot make a decision unless you have exhausted the complaints procedure provided by the National Lottery Commission. The ICO can be contacted at: The Information Commissioners’ Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9 5AF.
