England Committee Members

The National Lottery Community Fund
Remuneration is £7,848 per annum

The National Lottery Community Fund is the largest single source of community funding in the UK. We support amazing projects that help to strengthen society and improve lives. National Lottery players raise an incredible £30 million a week for good causes. This money funds projects and activities that transform communities, protect our heritage, and enrich lives. We are proud to be one of 12 distributors responsible for awarding this funding across the UK. We also distribute non-National Lottery funds, working closely with UK Government on funding for important issues such as youth social action and health and wellbeing.


We are now recruiting for one current vacancy in our England Committee. The England Committee sets the direction of our work and takes decisions about our large grants in England. There are seven members including the England Chair.

This opportunity comes at a time of significant renewal at the Fund following the launch of our new strategy, It starts with community, setting a new direction to 2030. England Committee Members joining at this exciting time will be responsible for overseeing delivery within England, when growth in returns to good causes is expected, alongside the Fund’s ongoing third party and dormant assets work.

This is an exciting time to join the Fund’s England Committee. We are looking for Committee Members who will bring exceptional knowledge, skills and experience from the broadest range of backgrounds and likely to have some regional knowledge of the country.  In particular the Fund welcomes candidates who have deeper experience and expertise in the wider charitable sector and can demonstrate significant commitment to local communities across England, including within environmental or sustainability initiatives. 

You will ideally be someone with unimpeachable integrity, skilled ambassadorial capability and a maturity of judgement. A natural collaborator, you will have highly effective interpersonal and communication skills, as well as a demonstrable interest in positive social change and a strong commitment to the values of our organisation. We want to ensure any appointee is committed to promoting diversity, in its broadest possible sense.
