We anticipate receiving many more applications than we can fund. We appreciate the time and energy it takes to write grant applications, so with this in mind, please read these guidance notes carefully before you apply.
When should you apply?
Applications will open from 9am on 8th January and close at 5.30pm on 22nd January 2024 for this grants round. Funds permitting, we will open another round later in the year.
How to apply
Organisations who meet the requirements of the eligibility questionnaire will be able to apply for funding on our website via an online application form.
Please contact us at email@example.com if you have any accessibility needs.
We will ask about
Project specific questions
There are no word count limits in this application form. We would encourage you to be concise in your answers.
Application and assessment
After you submit the full application form, you will receive a confirmation email and a copy of your application.
Once a decision has been reached, we’ll email you to confirm the outcome. If your application is successful, this will explain more about what happens next. If you are unsuccessful, feedback is available upon request.
Where we will fund
We will consider applications from organisations working across all four nations of the United Kingdom. We will not support activities outside of the United Kingdom.
We want to direct funding to where it is needed most. Applications from areas of deprivation, or those that can show how the project will benefit those most in need within an area of wealth disparity will be prioritised.
There will be space in the application form for you to demonstrate the level of need in the area your organisation serves.
What we will support
Applications to the grants programme must demonstrate how the funding would be used to address one or more of the following:
As well as seeking out innovative ideas which could change the way we think and do things in the future, we will also support charities in need of funds just to keep doing more of what they already do well.
We will consider applications for both core funding as well as specific projects, including capital expenditure. If you are applying for core funding, the amount requested should not exceed 20% of your total income. We will not consider applications for activities which have already been completed.
For applicants working directly with people in need we are interested in hearing how you are listening to the voices of service users in your work and overcoming barriers people may face in accessing services.
We will award make awards of between £300 and £30,000 to each organisation through this grants round. This could be a multiyear award over a three year period, or a one-off grant for one year. The maximum amount you can apply for in total is £30,000.
