General Application dates
17 March 2020
The Trustees met on 17 March 2020 and awarded 71 grants for core costs. All applicants have been contacted via email only (due to the COVID-19 pandemic). The list of successful applicants can be found in the Recent Awards section of the website.
Applications for the general grant round opened on 18th May 2020. The current deadline for receipt of applications for this round is 12 noon 31st July 2020.
The Trustees will consider your application in October/November 2020. I hope you understand that we cannot write to all unsuccessful applications due to the high volume. So if you have not heard anything from us by mid-December 2020, it will mean your charity has not been awarded a grant. We do not give feedback I am afraid to say, again, because of the volumes involved. We will post a list of the successful applicants at the beginning of December 2020 on the Recent Awards section of our website.
