Leaders with Lived Experience Pilot Programme

Leaders with Lived Experience is a pilot programme providing National Lottery grants of between £20,000 and £50,000 to support lived experience leadership. A lived experience leader is someone who uses their first-hand experience of a social issue to create positive change for, and with, communities and people they share those experiences with. At this stage we expect to award between 15-20 grants.

You can apply if your organisation:

  • Was set up by a lived experience leader and/or
  • Is run by lived experience leaders and/or
  • Has a leadership that reflects those you seek to support

And is also one of these:

  • a voluntary or community organisation
  • a registered charity
  • a constituted group or club
  • a not-for-profit company or community interest company

For Comprehensive details, go to Leaders with Lived Experience.
