June 29, 2017

tnl_logo.pngVotes are now open for this year’s National Lottery Awards, the search for the UK’s favourite Lottery-funded projects. Four Big Lottery Fund projects from Wales need your votes as they aim for nationwide acclaim on BBC One in the televised ceremony in September.

The winners of each of the National Lottery Awards categories will get a £5,000 cash prize, an iconic National Lottery Awards trophy and attend a star-studded Awards ceremony, broadcast on BBC One in September.

Here are the four finalists funded by the Big Lottery Fund in Wales. Who will you vote for?

Creating Connections.pngSingle parents are twice as likely to feel stigmatised, isolated, and to live in poverty. This puts them at greater risk of developing mental health problems. Creating Connections has supported over 200 single parents through self-management groups in Cardiff and Newport, South Wales so that they don’t have to manage alone.  Find out more and vote here.
