Grants for Groups

Below you will find information about our grant programmes and when they are next open for applications. It is very important that you read the information given for each grant programme carefully to ensure your project fits the criteria.

Please submit an online application form on behalf of your organisation. You should expect to hear the outcome of your application around 6 weeks after the closing date unless stated otherwise.

We normally send out a grant alert email when we re-open a fund or launch a new funding programme, so please ensure you are signed up for our Grant Alerts (just click the link at the bottom of this page).

Most of our funding programmes can support core 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 – this means including a contribution towards your core costs in your budget. Please contact the Grants Manager if you need further information.
