Large-Scale grants are typically awarded for projects and research which support the Trust’s vision and strategic goals. The maximum amount which applicants can apply for is £30K. The average grant awarded in 2019-20 was £10,890. If you are seeking more than £30K in funding please contact the Chief Executive, Dr Kathryn Wright, to discuss this (firstname.lastname@example.org) and also consider whether your project could be funded by more than one Trust or Foundation, please see here for other sources of funding.
We welcome applications from organisations, charities and corporate bodies.
Applications for project grants are taken in two stages. Stage 1 is an initial short expression of interest application. If this is accepted, you will be invited to complete a fuller Stage 2 application form. You will normally have about 2 weeks to complete this second form and will be invited to have a phone conversation with the Chief Executive about your application before it is considered by Trustees. Your application will be considered, and you will be notified whether you have been successful either after the Grants’ Committee meeting or after the Full Board meeting. This could be up to 10 weeks after the application deadline. If your expression of interest is not accepted or is held at Stage 1 you will be notified of this approximately one week after the deadline.
Our next application deadline is noon on Tuesday 2nd February 2021.
