Big Lottery Fund and Heritage Lottery Fund change their names and logos

The Big Lottery Fund and Heritage Lottery Fund have changed their names and logos to reflect the direct connection between the sale of National Lottery tickets and the money going to good causes across the UK.

The Big Lottery Fund will now be known as The National Lottery Community Fund, while the Heritage Lottery Fund has changed its name to the National Lottery Heritage Fund. The rebranding has been accompanied by a corresponding change of logo, which can be seen below, as well as refreshed websites.

The popular Awards for All scheme is now called the National Lottery Awards for All.

The National Lottery Community Fund says that it expects the old logo will still be used for some time by many small grassroots groups who have received lottery funding for their projects and use the logo on their print materials. It has communicated to groups to support them in updating digital materials and to reassure them that they can continue to use previously printed materials or merchandise until they are ready to order new ones.

The National Lottery Heritage Fund is due to announce its new grant-making strategy shortly.
