Gambling provides a source of funding for community groups
Gambling and lottery activities provide funds for community groups through grants.
Application forms are available from societies (typically via a website), some community networks such as Citizens' Advice Bureaux, and often at gaming machine venues.
You must send your application directly to the society and not through a venue. The society must deal with you directly and not communicate with you through the venue.Further details on funding for community groups
