How to Apply

Application Update

Applications to the Trust’s grant-giving programme are now closed.  Trustees will attend a grant-making meeting in mid-July and successful applicants will be informed by 31 July 2024.  Applications will re- open on 15 August 2024. 

Please note that grant categories are under review, with changes expected during 2024 and 2025.  The first changes can be seen here; further changes are expected and will be posted on the website before the opening date of the next round of grant applications.


Applications should be received by the end of November 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.

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

If you have not heard within three 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.
