The training will be for charities and community groups with an annual income of up to £1 million. In addition, within this income threshold, a particular aim is to target organisations which have a local focus within England. We hope it will enable them to generate more fundraised income, supporting their vital work.

We are inviting organisations to apply for funding to provide this subsidised training. Applicants can ask for a grant between £50,000 and £200,000 to run projects that provide training between March 2017 and March 2019.

Complete and return the application form to by noon on 15 February 2017. If you have any queries about the application form or how to apply, email by 26 January 2017.
