How to Apply

Coronavirus Update

During the Coronavirus pandemic Trustees will continue to support existing grantees, but will not be awarding any new grants until further notice. If you have submitted an application for consideration this summer it will no longer be valid. To find out when the Trust will be accepting applications again, please check the website for updates.



Applications should be received by the end of December and end of May in order to be considered at one of the Trustee Meetings. It is sensible to get applications in well ahead of these dates.  Late applicants will be considered in the next funding round.

Successful applicants will be informed as soon as possible of the Trustees’ decision.

If you have not heard within two calendar months of the relevant closing date you should assume you have been unsuccessful.

Successful applicants will be encouraged to contribute to our website in a variety of ways and may be approached to showcase the work of the Trust.

Successful applicants will not be considered for a future award within a three year period.

Unsuccessful applicants will not be reconsidered within a 12 month period.
