Guidance on additionality related to Big Local money

February 2013

Big Local is a programme funded by the Big Lottery Fund, and the trust deed for the Big Local Trust states that Big Local money “should not simply replace statutory funding that meets a statutory obligation". This means that Big Local funding needs to be ‘additional’ to public funding (things national and local government should fund). Big Local funding cannot replace statutory funding that meets a statutory obligation. We know that additionality is a complex area and we encourage you to ring Local Trust or your rep if you have any queries or questions. We hope this guidance helps you understand ‘additionality’.
