    Community organisations across Yorkshire and the Humber have been awarded £9.5 million in National Lottery funding.

    The money, raised by players for good causes, is being distributed by the Big Lottery Fund, the largest funder of community activity in the UK. In total, 265 community projects in the region are receiving a share.

    Projects receiving funding in Bradford include Positive Minds – an awareness campaign about older people’s mental wellbeing – and Second Chance -  which works with young ex-offenders to reintegrate them into society and improve their life chances.
