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 we will suggest the most relevant fund for your funding bid. Applying to the best fund helps improve your chances so we recommend you always ensure you read and fully understand the guidelines. We can answer any questions you may have.


In most cases applications for £1,000- £10,000 will go to our Small and Community Grants panel and are considered on a monthly basis.


Please click on the deadlines page (right) for more information including aims and objectives of each of our funding programmes. If you would like to discuss which fund is best for you, call the grants team on 01604 230033.


If you need any support, don't hesitate to contact us on 01604 230033 or via email.


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.
