UK grant data coming online...

The UK's BIG Lottery Fund just published all of the grants they've made since 2004. Pretty exciting stuff, especially because it contains brief project descriptions *and* business numbers and charitable numbers. We've never seen the inclusion of unique numbers in any datasets other than the Qualified Donees worksheet in our T3010 and it represents a tremendous opportunity for linking datasets - as they point out in the description of the data.

This data set shows basic grants data from the BIG Lottery Fund, for grants made from 2004 onwards. Key data items are date of award, amount of award and charity and company number to enable future linking to other sets.
