We’ve been listening to our customers and we recognise the pressure and substantial amount of time it takes in completing a grant application form, especially if you're a volunteer.
We're determined to improve this experience and ease some of the frustration and burden that you may experience.
We've reviewed our processes and have designed a quick, easy and basic form for you to give us some information in respect to your idea.
Please note this is not a funding application but an opportunity for us to find out whether we're able to support your idea by reviewing it against our priorities and outcomes and respond to you quickly, saving you a lot of time and stress.
We're genuinely looking for great ideas that can help us deliver our strategic outcomes and priorities, but we'll also advise whether a project is suitable to be considered through one of our investment programmes such as Small Grants or the Community Asset Fund.
There are a number of misconceptions about who and what we fund. We fund a whole range of organisation types, including:
- Small voluntary sports clubs such as archery clubs, judo and cricket clubs
- Public sector organisations
- Youth clubs
- Women’s groups
- Disability organisations
- Friends of parks
- Housing associations
In fact, by changing the way we operate, we're actively encouraging organisations who we've never worked with before to come forward with their ideas.
If you're unsure, please feel free to give us a call on 03458 508 508, where one of our friendly advisors will be on hand to help you.
