Award partner advice notes (99kB)


This advice note provides guidance on the implications of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FoIA) and Environmental Information Regulations 2004 (EIR) for all award partners managing grant schemes on behalf of the Big Lottery Fund (BIG).
We have put together this help note to promote the idea that funding organisations are keen to work with their grant recipients to help solve problems if they occur during the course of a project. From staff retention to legal issues, and from market forces to difficulties raising match funding, most issues can be resolved if you pick up the phone and discuss the problem with the funder.
