Diary dates for applications
General grants are usually allocated following Trustees’ meetings which will happen in February/March and October/November each year. Children’s Summer Play scheme grants will be considered in April/May. All application forms are assessed on arrival and acknowledged within 8 weeks. If additional information is required, we will contact you further.
Applicants must make sure we receive a budget.
General Application dates
The Trustees met in October 2019 to consider all the General Applications. All successful applicants will receive a letter by Royal Mail by the end of November 2019. We do not write to unsuccessful applicants due to the volume. A list of successful applicants will be posted on the Recent Awards Section of this website by the end of November.
The Trustees will meet in February/March 2020. From now on, Trustees will only make grants towards core costs rather than specific projects as they recognise that smaller charities can find these hard to fund. This will hopefully mean that any grant given will have a more direct impact on the organisation concerned. Please apply on our new application form.
The deadline for receipt of applications is Friday 31 January 2020 (noon).
Summer Play Schemes
The 2020 summer play scheme application forms will be available from 1 February 2020. Please do not send any applications to us before this date.
