Guidance on how to apply

Main grants programme

Our two stage process allows you to submit an idea and test it with us without having to submit a full stage two application. You can find guidance on how to do this here . Please review this carefully before submitting an application.

Stage One Applications

The Stage One application is your opportunity to describe who you are, what you want to do, and why. Make it clear how your work would make a contribution towards the aim of our funding programme.

Once we have reviewed your stage 1 application, it will either be declined or you will be invited to a submit a full stage two application. Once this has been received we will set up a meeting with you to chat through your ideas.

Full second stage applications

These applications are by invitation only. If you are invited to do this and need more information please read here.

Small grants applicants

You only need to complete one form. If we have any questions about your application we’ll give you a call to talk them through. You can find guidance on how to do this here.

Sample application form

We know that some people find it helpful to be able to see the form before they fill it in. You can download a word copy of the stage one application form here and a copy of the small grants form here. Please note this is for reference only – applications must be submitted using our online form unless we have agreed another method with you.
