How to Apply


A completed application form is always required. This can be
downloaded by clicking here or by application to either of the
names listed under contacts in the menu on the left.

The completed application form should be sent to the
Administrator together with a copy of the applicant's most
recent accounts to reach him not later than the deadline for
the relevant meeting.

The deadlines are the 1st of the month preceding that of the
Trustees meeting i.e. 1st February 1st June and 1st October.  
No later than 12 pm noon on that date.  If the 1st of the Month
falls on a weekend or Bank holiday then the dead line date for
applications would be the last working day before.

If the application form gives too little space for the project to
be described adequately, up to two additional A4 sheets can
be accepted.

Completed applications are not acknowledged, but applicants
are welcome to email or telephone the Administrator to check
that they have arrived safely.

If in any doubt about the best way to complete the application
form, including the size of the grant to be requested, applicants
are strongly advised to telephone the Administrator who will
be glad to advise.

The policy of the Trustees is that capital funding is strongly
preferred, but some revenue requests might be accepted in
particular circumstances. The Trustees like to see some
element of self-help from applicants.
