What are we looking for?

We are looking for innovative projects aligned with our strategic objectives. You can view our objectives here: https://www.cstg.org.uk/about-us/strategy/

In addition, the Trust’s current priority areas include parental understanding of an education in religion and worldviews, pupil voice, engagement with local communities (e.g. worldview communities, local businesses or organisations), reaching the ‘unreached’ teachers, and initial teacher education. However, we also welcome applications with other themes.

Who can apply?

We welcome applications from any organisation whose proposed project is aligned with our objectives. This includes individual schools, multi-academy trusts, charities, local SACREs, organisations working to further religious and worldview literacy and so on. If you are not sure if your organisation would qualify, please contact us.

When does my project have to begin and end?

We would suggest your project begins at the earliest in Oct/Nov 2022. There is no set deadline for a project to be completed, but we would advise by the end of August 2023.

I’m interested but not sure if my idea would be suitable, can I talk to someone?

Of course. Email enquiries@cstg.org.uk  and we will set up a call for you.

How do I apply?

You should complete the simple online application form which asks the following questions:

What is the change you want to see?

What outcomes are you hoping for? i.e. what difference will your project make.

What intervention/activity will you undertake to achieve your outcomes?

How will you measure or assess the impact of your project? e.g. a survey, interviews

You will also be asked for a simple breakdown of costs.

How will awards be made?

A small 10th Anniversary Sub Committee of the Culham St Gabriel’s Board will meet to discuss and make the awards. The decision of this group is final.

If I win an award, when will I receive the money?

You will be required to complete an agreement and provide bank details for your organisation before money is released. It can sometimes take up to 6 weeks for all paperwork and details to be processed.

Conditions and further information:

  • The awards are only made to institutions (schools, charities, educational establishments, local, regional or national organisations) not individuals, however an individual may apply on behalf of an organisation.
  • Applications will only be considered for new projects. Awards will not be given to existing projects or initiatives.
  • The overall project/initiative budget should not exceed £2K (see below).
  • Applications are welcome for projects where an organisation is willing to ‘match fund’ with £1000, or where funding has been sought elsewhere for up to £1000.
