The Charity Commission requires us as grant givers, to ensure that recipients have adequate safeguarding policies and procedures in place. As part of your grant application please therefore attach a copy of your policy. If you do not have a policy but are in the process of developing one please advise as this may be acceptable in the short term. If you do not have a policy and are unsure how to go about preparing one please see the useful contacts section of our website which will give you further advice and assistance.

Please complete the on-line application form and submit it or print it off to fill in by hand and post. Please note the on-line application form will be timed out after a while, we recommend you either complete it in one sitting or answer the questions in a word document and paste onto the form. The trustees meet quarterly, usually in January, April, July and October and your application needs to be in 3 weeks before the trustees meeting. See below for forthcoming meeting dates.

If you are writing to us it should be based on the application form and include:

  • The name and address of your organisation and its registered charity number. (If not registered, you will need to provide the name of a registered charity or CVS and its charity number that is prepared to administer funds on your behalf)
