General points

The Guidelines give step-by-step advice on applying for funding.

Before you apply:

In order to prepare your application, please make sure you are eligible for funding.

Please download and read the Guidelines on this page and check our Geographical area.

It is very important to do this, as many of the applications we receive are not eligible and so fall at the first fence.


This preparation will also help you find out what we are looking for, and how to make the best case.

Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Have I read the Application Guidelines in full?

  • Does my project meet the criteria to apply for funding and can I satisfy all requests for information?

  • Is my project for running costs, wages or rent?  If so then, unfortunately, you are not eligible for funding.

  • Should my project be funded by a local authority or public expenditure? If so then, unfortunately, you are not eligible for funding.

  • Can I demonstrate that my project would not be possible without funding from the charity?

  • Revenue Grants are not favoured by the Trustees (e.g. running costs/salaries).
