What funding is available:
Applications from controlling bodies are preferred, however, in certain circumstances applications from both a controlling body and branch may be considered. Applicants are expected to have made endeavours to raise funds independently. The significance of government funding will be taken into consideration when assessing applications. Applications for religious purposes will be considered only when the organisation is providing a full and general secular education or a social service.
It is important that all details on the application are concise and easy to read. Applications that are not completed in full will not be accepted.
Decisions relating to grant applications are made on the information provided in the application, and other general enquiries. The Board of Governors may approve a grant subject to certain conditions. In such circumstances, the funds will normally be held by the Trustee until the conditions have been met.
