Big Lottery data now available in Community Insight

We are always looking to add new datasets into Community Insight. So, we are really excited to announce that we have now added Big Lottery grant data to the tool. If you’ve ever bought a lottery ticket,  you can now use Community Insight to see where that money has been spent!

The Big Lottery data

We have added three datasets from the Big Lottery. The datasets span different time periods in order to provide both a snapshot of how recent grant funding has been spent whilst also allowing for the study of more longitudinal data.The datasets available are:

  • Big Lottery grant funding per head (£) 2004-2010
  • Big Lottery grant funding per head (£) 2004-2015
  • Big Lottery grant funding per head (£) 2011-2015

The data is published by the Big Lottery at Ward level and we have apportioned it down using population weighting at Output Area level to provide data for your custom areas. To find out more about the raw data see the Big Lottery website

Big Lottery grant funding per head (£) 2004-2015

Use the Big Lottery data to…

  • Explore how much Big Lottery grant funding your local areas receive compared to areas around the country
  • Question assumptions made about how grant money has been spent across the areas you work in.
  • Build up a picture of how grant funding has affected your communities over the past 13 years and see whether there are any areas which have received little to no funding.
  • Measure if there is a correlation between levels of grant funding and areas of deprivation.
