INFORMATION FOR APPLICANTS

We look forward to receiving your application.
In order to help us process applications, please note the following:

  • The questions about your project should be answered on the Application Form in the spaces provided and not on a separate sheet. The initial selection process will rely on the Application Form only. Applications without a completed form and incorrectly or partially completed applications will not be considered.
     
  • If the trustees decide they are interested in your application you will be contacted and asked to send further relevant information such as a project budget and your annual accounts. Please do not send these with your application form.
     
  • Please be sure to provide an email address and also a website address if you have one.
    Please keep us informed of email changes during the application process.
     
  • Applications are considered at twice yearly trustees meetings in April and November and need to be received by 31st January and 31st July each year.
     
  • We aim to keep our overheads to a minimum and do not have the resources to enter into correspondence about applications – please use the information provided here to decide how to fill in your application. No further information will be provided. We receive many more applications than we can fund and, regretfully, we will be unable to support many good applications.
     
  • Examples of projects we have recently funded are available here
     
  • Successful applicants should wait 12 months before applying again. Unsuccessful applicants should also wait 12 months before re-applying.
  • We are unable to acknowledge applications. Successful applicants only will be contacted as soon as possible after trustee’s meetings. If you have been successful you will hear by the end of May or the end of November. Enquiries about progress will receive no response.
     
  • We do not give grants to individuals.
     
  • We will consider applications for either capital or revenue funding.
     
  • Only in exceptional circumstances will grants be given for building work.
     
  • We will consider applications for projects abroad.
     
  • In any one year the grant range to a project is between £500 and £10,000.
     
  • It is our normal practice not to give grants to the same project for more than three years.
     
  • Charities with a number of projects operating should choose a single project for their application.
     
  • When posting a completed Application Form to the address below please do not staple the two pages together and do not send DVD's/CD's.
     
  • Projects which have had three years funding may apply again two years from the payment of the last grant.
