Applications may be made online or by post. Applicants should look at the What We Fund and the What We Don’t Fund pages before applying. Any application which does not meet our funding criteria will not be considered by the trustees. Our meetings are normally held in the first week of March, July and November. Applications must be submitted a minimum of FOUR weeks before each meeting to be considered.
No more than one application may be made within a 12-month period.
Unfortunately, we cannot fund all the qualifying applications that are made to the Trust. Neither the trustees nor the Secretary can enter into discussion about the decisions made in the meeting, nor is there any appeal process. The trustees may wish to contact a named representative of the project to discuss the application before a grant is made.
Before you begin filling in the application form, you will need the following:
- Information about your organisation: contact details, charity information
- Information about your project: project details, funding information, contact information
