At the Big Lottery Fund, we like to focus on the strengths people bring. However, we also recognise that there are people struggling to overcome serious issues. That’s why we think it’s important to share what we know about how to help people overcome tough times.

To help people do this, we have funded a number of programmes including:

Within these programmes, we have funded thousands of projects targeting:

  • Domestic abuse
  • Substance abuse
  • Offending/reoffending
  • Financial crisis

In this section, you will find an outline of some of the learning from more recent research and evaluations relating to hardship with links to more detailed reports. You can use our learning too, to plan projects that get the best results.
