National Lottery Community Fund Chair appointments

THE National Lottery Community Fund, the UK’s largest funder of community activity in the UK, has today announced the appointment of new Chairs of its England and Scotland Committees.

Their appointments come at a time when the Fund remains focussed on distributing vital funding to groups that are helping communities through the current COVID-19 crisis and, longer-term, on supporting the ideas and projects that put people in the lead.

John Mothersole has taken the reins of the Fund’s England Committee, advising how National Lottery funding is used to support communities in England to thrive.

Previously a regular member of the Fund’s England Committee, John has held several senior positions in local government across the UK. In December 2019, he stood down from his post as Chief Executive of Sheffield City Council after more than a decade in the job.

Kate Still is to lead the Fund’s Scotland Committee, overseeing grantmaking in the country. With over 25 years’ experience in education, employability and community enterprise, Kate is currently Director for Scotland at The Prince’s Trust. Previously she was Chair of Employment Support Scotland and a Fellow of the Institute of Employability.

John Mothersole, newly appointed Chair of The National Lottery Community Fund’s England Committee, said:

“I am delighted and honoured. The National Lottery Community Fund is such a force for good in this country, so the opportunity to work with the team shaping its future impact as well as helping to oversee its current work was irresistible.

“I come to this role with a strong sense of both the responsibility and of what I can give in terms of my own long experience working with communities and helping to make the right things happen. My emphasis will always be on impact and sustainability and the Fund is especially well placed in delivering that.”

Kate Still, The National Lottery Community Fund’s new Scotland Committee Chair, said: 

“I am honoured to be appointed to the role of Chair with The National Lottery Community Fund in Scotland. I look forward to supporting people tackle the issues that matter most to them to improve lives and build stronger communities that put people in the lead.”

Dawn Austwick, Chief Executive of The National Lottery Community Fund, said: 

“With over a decade of experience leading Sheffield Council, and even longer spent in local authorities across the UK, John has seen first-hand that when people are in the lead, communities thrive.

“With Kate’s background and expertise in employment and skills, she knows that people understand, better than anyone, what’s needed in their communities.

“As Chairs of our England and Scotland Committees, their vision will help us to fulfil our fundamental purpose of awarding National Lottery money to help create stronger, more connected communities across the UK.”
