The Henley Centre Report on the National Lottery's impact on job creation in the UK NLDF grants (National Lottery Distribution Fund)
The study evaluated the impact of the NLDF grants on employment in three areas: construction and related professions, new complexes and revenue projects.
NLDF grants, together with matching funding, will generate approximately 30,305 jobs by the year 2000.
The full impact of the NLDF awards for funding new complexes, for example, the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff and the redevelopment of Portsmouth harbour, will be felt from 1998 onwards when approximately 9,570 new jobs will have been created, rising to approximately 24,115 by 2000.
Approximately 350 jobs (rising to 380 from 1997) in the 11 NLDF bodies, the Department of National Heritage and OFLOT are directly attributable to the National Lottery.
