How to Apply

Step 1

Please review the Grant Themes to check if our next grant round is the most suitable grant round for your organisation to apply to. 

Step 2

Take our quick Eligibility Quiz to review our key grant making criteria, and to see if we are able to support in principle your project and organisation in our next grant round.

Step 3

If you are eligible, review the Application Form Questions for the latest round.

Step 4

Prepare and draft your answers in advance, using the Application Form Questions, Guidance and our FAQS.  

TOP TIP - Ask someone who doesn't know your organisation to proof read it to give you honest and constructive feedback.

Step 5

The grant round opened on Monday 4 September and it will close once 40 applications have been accepted or at the latest by Friday 29 September. We limit each grant round to the first 40 accepted applications. Apply early in the month to ensure your application is considered.  We will post an update on our latest news and on this page if we are intending to close early giving at least 24 hours notice, so please check frequently. 

Application Round Closed

UPDATE 14 September - we are now closed, we have accepted 40 applications. 

UPDATE 12 September - we will be closing early, but we still have a couple of spaces remaining, we anticipate closing later this week, once we have accepted 40 applications. If the online application form link has been removed, then we are closed, if in doubt, please contact us via email to check

UPDATE 8 September - we will be closing early, all applications must be submitted by 1pm on Tuesday 12th September

IMPORTANT! Please remember the application form must be completed in one sitting, (currently the form does not save as you type, we are working on this for future rounds), so please prepare your answers in advance using the application form questions template, then when you are ready, copy and paste your answers into the online form.  

Step 6

Once completed, all applicants will by return receive a PDF printable copy of their Application Form.  This is not an automated process, so it may take up to 5 working days, please be patient.  At this point you will be advised if your application has been accepted, rejected or if further information is required.  

Step 7

Wait...  the Grant Advisory Panel consider and review applications in October, final decisions will be made at the Panel meeting on Wednesday 8th November.

Applicants will be advised of the outcome within 10 working days of the meeting which for this round will be Wednesday 22nd November 2023.
