DSC response to the OCS consultation on proposed policy directions for the Big Lottery Fund (November 2011)

In November 2011 we responded to an Office for Civil Society consultation on the policy direction for the Big Lottery Fund, the lottery distributor which provides charities with approximately £500m worth of grants annually.

In our response, we argue that ‘building the social investment market’ is not an appropriate role for Big, and that the definition of additionality needs to strengthened not further watered down.
