Funding Guide 2018

Successful applicants will receive an email with more details on how to complete Stage 2 by no later than 28th March. Unsuccessful applicants will also recieve a notification email and are welcome to apply for a different project in the year's second funding round. Please note that these decisions are final.

Stage 2

The second stage requires applicants to provide more detail on both their organisation and the project, including: 

  • More details on the origins, structure, core aims and activities of your organisation
  • A full project description, outlining the it's need and chief activities
  • Projected short-term outcomes and long-term impacts of the project
  • Estimated numbers of beneficiaries
  • A full breakdown of the total project costs, proposed spend of our grant and other funding towards the project
  • Supporting documents: including your organisation's constitution, article or memorandum of understanding - as well as annual accounts and quotes for single items costing over £1,000.

We will aim to let all applicants know the outcome of their application within 8-12 weeks. Please note that owing to the volume of applications, and because all decisions are approved at a Trustee meeting, we cannot do so any sooner.

Following this, applicants must then return a funding agreement and their organisation's bank statement before payment will be made.

Upon completion of projects, all grant-holders must then complete an evaluation form - more details of which will be sent over the course of the following year.
