Our grants are intended to create a step change for your organisation. What do you need to get to the next stage of your development?

How do we apply?
Watch our webinar here to understand how you can make the best possible application for funding.
You will need to register your interest. Registration will be open for one week from 12pm (midday) on Wednesday 6th December to 12pm (midday) on Wednesday 13th December. During this time, please register your interest on our Apply for Funding webpage (this will take 2 to 3 minutes). We ask that only one registration is completed per organisation. If multiple are completed, we will only consider one in the interest of fairness.
On Thursday 14th December, all who have registered for the funding round will receive an email confirming whether or not they have been allocated a place on the funding round. If you have been allocated a place on the funding round, this email will invite you to submit a full application and provide details of how to apply. If we receive more registrations than the number of places available on the funding round, then places will be allocated randomly.
Once you have received the confirmation email, please ensure that you write and submit your application using the link provided in your confirmation email before the application deadline on Monday 15th January 2024 at 5:00pm.
