Green Paper to end charities' chase for Lottery cash share

Youth charities and community halls will no longer have to chase after different Lottery grants if recommendations contained in the Department of Culture, Media and Sport's Green Paper on Lottery money distribution go ahead.

The Review of Lottery Funding consultation paper, out this week, proposes new cross-cutting funds for causes which currently straddle different programmes and distributory bodies. These include a new Youth Fund to integrate all the different funds allocated to young people and another devoted solely to community halls.

Social enterprises also stand to gain under a proposal for seed-corn funding through the Lottery.

The Community Fund has attacked the paper's more radical suggestions, including the proposal to merge some of the 15 distributing bodies and create a single umbrella Lottery distributor.
