Below you will find information about our grant programmes and whether they are currently accepting applications. It is very important that you read the information given for each grant programme carefully to ensure your project fits the criteria.
You will be asked to submit an online application form on behalf of your organisation and your application will be assessed and decisions about funding made by a grants panel. You should expect to hear the outcome of your application around 6 weeks after the closing date.
We normally send out a grant alert when we re-open a fund or launch a new funding programme, so please ensure you are signed up for our Grant Alert (bottom of each page).
Good to know: Some of our funding programmes can support core costs or service delivery costs, and most will support the continuation of existing work. For groups applying for specific services/projects, a Full Cost Recovery approach is usually acceptable, in order to make a small contribution to core costs or overheads. Please contact the Grants Manager if you need further information.
