The fund has an allocation of £15,000 per annum minimum; we will make grants from £250 up to the maximum funds available in each year. You must be able to explain what you will do with the grant, who will benefit and how you know the work will be effective.
You can apply for general running costs, specific projects or activities, or for the costs of capital developments or equipment.
If you are applying for capital items, we ask for three quotes to be provided, we recognise this is not always possible, if you can only secure one, or two quotes we will contact to you to understand why.
CICs or other social enterprises with a good business plan can apply for help with start-up or expansion, but we do not normally support their general running costs.
