There is no pro-forma application form but we do ask applicants to download and complete an application cover sheet, which is available on completion of an eligibility quiz.

The application cover sheet should be accompanied by a covering letter and concise project proposal, about 3 - 4 pages in length, which should include the following information:

  • Description of the project / activity for which funding is sought; this should identify the need the project addresses and the difference it will make
  • Anticipated start and end date of the project
  • A detailed budget breakdown
  • Fundraising plan, to include anticipated sources of funding, funds already secured and plans for securing the shortfall (including any loan arrangements, sale of assets etc)
  • Arrangements for monitoring and evaluating the project

You also need to enclose with your application:

  • A copy of the charity’s most recent annual report and audited / independently examined accounts.
  • A stamped addressed envelope (no bigger than C5)

You may also like to provide a list of other supporting documents available on request e.g. business plan, architect’s drawings etc
