Making your Application


We strive to make our grants process simple and easy for you.  Our grants team are always available to talk with you about your project idea and can suggest the best fund to apply to. Always read the guidelines available on each fund's page.

For an overview of each fund's aims and the deadlines for applications, please go to our deadlines & fund summaries page. In most cases applications are considered on a monthly basis.


We require some supporting documents and can support you if you do not have these in place. If you wish to send in a hard copy rather than attach them to the online application please download the supporting documents checklist. Send this completed document along with the supporting paperwork.


If you would like to discuss which fund is best for you please call the grants team on 01604 230033. We can also answer any questions you may have.


We also provide feedback on applications. If you would like to take this service up, before you click 'verify and submit' email your personal link to Rachel, who will be happy to make suggestions which may prove helpful especially if this is your first time applying for funds.
