Phil Chamberlain and Emma Corrigan have been appointed as new Directors of the UK National Lottery Community Fund.

The duo have been assigned joint responsibility for the £450m-plus a year funding to projects and communities across England, playing a key role in the recently launched Strategy Renewal process which aims to support people and communities to ‘prosper and thrive in the future’.

Chamberlain, who previously held a leadership position at the NLCF’s predecessor, the Big Lottery Fund, will have responsibility for strategy, partnerships and engagement.

Corrigan, who was most recently Head of Design and Delivery at BBC Children in Need, has been tasked with overseeing programmes, operations and regions.

“I am fortunate enough to have been informed by all my experiences, and I am excited to be re-joining The National Lottery family – to help lead and further champion the work of The National Lottery Community Fund to best support the communities and individuals it serves,” said Chamberlain.

Corrigan said: “I am delighted, as someone whose career has centred around quality grant making, to be able to join the fund to support work of such scale and breadth.

“The capacity available to enable communities across the UK is humbling to me, and I am ready to listen to the wealth of knowledge and expertise of the organisation to enact positive and meaningful change where it is needed most.”

Chamberlain and Corrigan will both assume their roles in June.
