Equality Matters is a good practice guide for small to medium-sized voluntary or community sector organisations. The guide is designed to help applicants think about equality issues and incorporate them into planning their projects, whether they are applying to the Big Lottery Fund (or another funder). This guide is part of our drive to promote equality and maximise opportunities for people to take part in the projects we fund. The guide was updated in October 2011.

Equality Information - Grant holders Guide (2012) (PDF, 376 kb)

Recent changes to our grant set up and grant management, will help us get a better understanding of who is benefiting from our funding and how our funding can reach the widest reach of people as possible – which is fundamental in helping to bring real improvements to communities and the lives of people most in need.

We knew that our staff and customers would need support to help with these changes, so we produced an Equality Information guide for grant holders The guide provides lots of examples, links to data sources and plenty of good practice. This guide was updated in January 2012.
