NEW: Places Called Home - Closes by 14th July

IKEA Limited and The National Lottery Community Fund have come together to grow thriving, resilient and sustainable communities across the UK. Places Called Home is a new £1.5 million fund that aims to inspire and help people get more involved in their local community as a positive, homely place to be and meet other people.

The aim is to build on the energy, creativity and practices of communities coming together during the COVID-19 pandemic, through local activities and the renewal of community spaces. 

Grants of between £1,000 and £5,000 will be available.

Places called Home will now open for applications on 30 June 2021. It'll be open for two weeks or once they've received 1,500 applications - whichever comes first.

More information will be available on the National Lottery Community Fund's website.
