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.
Please note – the closing date for applications to be submitted for consideration at our October meeting will be Wednesday 11th August.
Applications received after that date will be considered in the round leading up to our February 2022 meeting. Please apply as soon as you are ready – we process applications all the time – and would appreciate it if you are able to apply well before the deadline.
