If you have any queries about making an application you are encouraged to 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 now, until the early part of December, are likely to be considered in the round leading upto the following Trustees’ meeting in February 2024.
Please apply as soon as you are ready – don’t leave it to the last minute!
We process applications all the time – and would appreciate it if you are able to apply well before the deadline.
