The Platinum Jubilee Fund | The National Lottery Community Fund

The Platinum Jubilee celebrates 70 years of Her Majesty The Queen’s reign and to mark this occasion, The National Lottery Community Fund will fund 70 projects across the UK.

  • We are looking for projects that go beyond simply celebrating but for those that create change for communities.
  • We want to fund projects that create a greater legacy for our places and spaces, and that support new opportunities, activities and build better relationships with one another, across generations and with the natural world.
  • Funded projects will need to be up and running by Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Central Weekend on 5 June 2022.


We would expect the projects we fund under this programme to start in Spring 2022 onwards.

Our three areas of focus are:

  1. Across Generations – Strengthening relationships between generations and creating a legacy for future generations.
  2. Community Renewal – Supporting new opportunities for people to develop skills and experiences in their local community, as well as opportunities to bring people together in new ways, and in new or different places and spaces.
  3. Our Shared Natural World – Growing our care and action locally for the natural world. 

Across the applications, we will be looking for and.prioritising projects that:

  • draw on the creativity of the community
  • want to do something new and inventive
  • bring new opportunities
  • make use of sites of local significance
  • use multiple channels through which people can participate,
  • that will have impact on more than one of the above areas of focus, and
  • we’re especially keen to see applications led by young people.

Suitable for: Small local voluntary or community organisations and groups,

Total available: £3.5 million

Application deadline: 15 December 2021 at 5pm or once we receive 700 applications – whichever comes first.
