You need to submit an application that does justice to your project and highlights how it is going to make a real difference to people’s lives or the environment.

The process of applying for funding is in three sections – 1. Information, 2. Guidance and 3. Apply. Links to these three sections can be found on the left.

You need to move through each section in sequence and read all the information to find our criteria, what we look for in a project, what information we will need, and when it is best to apply. You can also see examples of project case studies in the ‘Our projects’ section of this site.

Information: This section enables you to check if your project meets our criteria and if our funding timetable is right for you. First use our Postcode Checker to find out if your project site is located in an area we fund.

Guidance: This information will help you develop the best possible project.

Apply: If you think your project meets our criteria, you can start applying for funding. The answers you submit in this section are automatically checked against our initial criteria. If your project appears to be something we can consider funding you will receive an instant response with a link to our online Application Form.

If you would like to discuss your project, please contact us - we will be happy to help.
