The Improving Lives Through Advice grants programme

The Improving Lives Through Advice (ILTA) programme is a new multi-year core costs grants programme being delivered in partnership with the Community Justice Fund.

ILTA is supported by £30 million from The National Lottery Community Fund, the largest community funder in the UK, to provide access to specialist social welfare legal advice. Thanks to National Lottery players, the funding will enable expert organisations to support some of the most marginalised communities in England – including people with disabilities, women fleeing abuse and families facing eviction.

The Expression of Interest (EOI) stage of Round 2 of the Improving Lives Through Advice (ILTA) grants programme is now open and will close on 15 January 2024 at 4pm.

Round 2 is open to applicants who are able to demonstrate and evidence a track record of delivering advice services or supporting access to advice services, this could be through involvement in a health justice partnership, having an established referral pathway to advice services or co-location of services with advice agencies.

Please find the EOI online form, eligibility and guidance criteria here.

An information session for ILTA Round 2 will be held via Zoom at 11am-12pm on Wednesday 6 December 2023 to provide information on the guidance and eligibility and answer any questions. Please register to attend here.
