disadvantaged and socially excluded people throughout the UK.

framework 2009-2015 can be found on the Big Lottery Fund website.
At the moment it distributes 50% of the good causes money raised
through the UK National Lottery. The Government is currently
consulting on proposals to amend BIG's share of the Lottery good
causes money to 46%, from 1 April 2011 and to 40% from 1 April
2012. Also the Government proposes that, subject to a separate
consultation, BIG should concentrate its funding on the voluntary
and community sector in future.

Our charity has undergone huge changes in recent years to
transform both our structure and our services. Most recently we
have had £8m of new investment from central government to further
develop our help for victims as well as launching the UK's first
dedicated support service for people bereaved by homicide. In order
to raise our profile and awareness of what we do, we have launched
a new brand identity and national advertising campaign and will be
putting in place a new long term fundraising strategy.
