How to apply?

When to apply?

Awards from this fund are made on an ongoing basis – there is no deadline. We aim to make decisions within 8-10 weeks of receiving a completed application.

We regret to advise that due to the current Coronavirus crisis in the United Kingdom, with the support of our funders and donors we are putting on hold the processing of grants that are not directly related to projects seeking to alleviate the effects of this crisis on the community, to mitigate the effects of the crisis on local voluntary sector groups or work related to flood recovery.

For details of the Coronavirus Community Fund and to make an application if the above applies to your group, please click here to see the details. We are positively encouraging groups to apply to us for support during this period and putting on hold other grant making allows us to prioritise this work.

For other, non-priority funds you may continue to complete an application and we will be in touch when our usual grant making programmes recommence. At present we do not know when this will be but we will keep this under review.

If you would like any further information or assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us by emailing
