  • Applications that pass an agreed preliminary screening process are considered at a meeting of the full Board of Trustees twice a year - usually in June and January.
  • Submission deadlines are midnight (GMT) on 15th May and 15th December respectively.
  • We aim to let applicants know whether or not their application has reached the final stage of the consideration process within 2 weeks of the trustees meeting at which the application is being considered.
  • Applicants that reach the final stage will be asked to supply further information for the due diligence process including the contact details of two individuals who are able to provide a reference (usually from organisations that have provided funds previously).

What are the terms and conditions of a grant?

  • Successful applicants will be asked to sign a simple grant agreement setting out their obligations in relation to the grant.
  • Grants must be used for the purposes outlined in the application. If the project is unable to go ahead as planned we are happy to consider variations as to how the money is to be spent, however, the money must not be used for any other purposes without our agreement. It must be returned if the project does not go ahead.
  • Recipients of a grant will be required to provide a report on the funded project to the trustees every 3 months of receiving the grant.
