About us

What was The People’s Millions?

The People’s Millions was a partnership between Big Lottery Fund and ITV, where the public helped decide which local community projects get up to £50,000 of National Lottery funding.

How long has The People’s Millions been running?

We ran the competition between 2005 and 2014. We made a total of 599 awards worth over £31 million.

Why did you work with ITV?

We wanted to get the public more involved in deciding which projects to support. Working closely with ITV helped us do this.
