In January 2019 we moved to an online application system.
If you had been working on applying to us with a written application, this will still be considered whilst we move fully across to the online application system. Please just either post or email the application to us.
If you have any queries about making an application you are encouraged to either phone or email us for clarification.
Applications are processed continuously.
When we have received your application we will be in touch (usually within two weeks) to either:
Ask for any further information
Tell you if your application will be put forward to the next stage of assessment and give a timetable for a final decision
Tell you that we cannot help
Processing an application and making a grant usually takes between two and six months.
If further information is needed this will be requested and a visit may be arranged where the application can be discussed in more detail. Our Trustees meet to discuss grant applications three times a year, generally in February, June and October.
All applications received before Friday 9th August will be considered in the round leading up to our October Trustees’ meeting. Please apply as soon as you are ready.
Applications received after 9th August will be considered in the following round – leading up to our February 2020 meeting.
