Please ensure you complete all required sections of the form properly as incomplete proposal forms will be rejected.
Please also ensure that you complete an activity based budget (in excel) which will explain how much money is required and how the money will be spent and send alongside your proposal.
We are keen to provide funding for projects with a budget of up to £10,000. Projects above this limit are not ruled out, but will be funded if there is a compelling reason for it.
We will review your proposal and inform you if you are successful or not.

These arrangements will include submitting quarterly project and financial reports during the implementation of your project, and a final report at the project’s completion.

We are only able to provide an advance payment of up to 25% of the total project budget only under exceptional circumstances.
