The government is seeking your views on the functions, form, effectiveness, efficiency and governance of the Big Lottery Fund.

Consultation description

On 21 November 2013 the Minister for Civil Society announced the start of the triennial review of the Big Lottery Fund. This is being conducted as part of the public bodies reform requirement for all government departments to review their non departmental public bodies (NDPBs) at least once every 3 years.

As for all triennial reviews, the review team will examine whether there is a continuing need for the functions performed by the Big Lottery Fund, and whether the organisation should continue to operate in its current form. If the team determines that there is a continuing need for the organisation in its current form, the review will assess whether its control and governance arrangements continue to meet the recognised principles of good corporate governance. The review will also consider its structure, efficiency and effectiveness.

Triennial reviews do not require a public consultation, but in order to complete a full assessment of the Big Lottery Fund, we are inviting contributions from people and organisations that have an involvement with, or an interest in, it as an organisation. The responses received will be included in the body of evidence used by the review team when making its assessment.
