Lottery Seniors grants enhance the wellbeing of older people, especially by helping them to remain active in their own communities. (A group qualifies as "older people" when at least half of its client-base is over the age of 60.)
The Lottery Seniors Committee meets four times a year - March, June, August and November. Closing dates for applications are eight to 12 weeks before each meeting. Check here for application closing dates and Distribution Committee meeting dates for 2003.
