Application deadlines

Your application form must be sent to our grants office by the deadline. Our grants committee will then consider your application at their next meeting.

Deadlines for Small Grant Application (one stage process)

Small grant applicants do not need to complete a preliminary proposal (stage 1 application). A small grant is either:

  • A request for up to £2,000 for equipment, core costs or project funding
  • A request for up to £5,000 for a capital project such as building work at a village hall
