Apply for grants and awards

For a list of the funds that are currently available please visit our Funds & Programme Information page. The application forms are below. Please read the guidelines carefully before submitting your application to ensure that the project you are applying for meets the criteria of at least one of the funds that are currently available. If it does not meet the criteria your application will be withdrawn. 

Most of our funds are online applications using our standard form (available below); some require their own application, if so details are given in the fund criteria.

We do not ask you to apply to a particular fund, though to simply provide information on what your project is, costs, why you want to deliver it and importantly, what difference it will make in your community. We will then try to match your application to the most appropriate available fund. If you need assistance with the online application form please contact us or your local CVS or Community Development agency.

*Please note individual application forms below are opened through the software Microsoft Word, please ensure you have the relevant software to access the application form as we do not have alternative formats 

 IMPORTANT- Submitting Supporting Documents with your application!

• A recent bank statement
• Safeguarding Policy (where applicable)

If the above documents are not received your application cannot be considered (not applicable for applications from individuals).
