Business support in ScotlandBig Lottery Fund Scotland

The Big Lottery Fund believes that people should be in the lead in improving their lives and communities.  To enable strong, vibrant communities to be built and renewed by the people living in them, they need to be ready for anything in the face of future opportunities and challenges.

To support this approach, we have partnered with the Big Lottery Fund in Scotland to provide business support to empower the people that support their communities through the provision of their grant funded services.

Whether you are in the process of applying for a grant or have already received one, we may be able to link you up with an independent business advisor who can enable you to make great things happen through one to one and group support and mentoring. 

Type of support provided includes:

  • Business planning
  • Financial management
  • Good governance
  • Policy development
  • Controls & best practice
  • Trading & income generation
