Applying for a Grant
The Trust would like to encourage you to use the BACS electronic payment method if it is available to you. If you select BACS, you MUST send us proof of your bank account details. This can be a copy of a paying-in slip or recent bank statement, providing it shows the account name, number and sort-code. Please can you send us a hardcopy, even if you have applied online. If you have not enclosed this with your application and it is successful, we will pay your grant by cheque but we are seeking to reduce our use of cheques dramatically over the course of the next year.
There are three methods which you can use to apply for a grant from the Trust.
1. We have an online application facility. Please click on the link below to begin the process. As we still need to have a signed paper copy, plus a covering letter, you will also need to print a copy and post it to us, along with any supporting documentation. Please also keep a copy for your records. There is a link to print off your completed application at the end of the online form - you must do this as there is no facility to go back and print it afterwards. We will not process your application until we have received the paper copy so please post this promptly after submitting your online application. Start your online application by clicking here
2. If you have Microsoft Word (version 2003 onwards) and would like to complete the form on your computer, please click on this link to download our application form. When completing the form, please replace the text [type here] with your own answers. Once you have completed the form, please keep a copy for your records, post a copy to us along with any supporting documentation required and a covering letter.
3. If you would like to print a paper copy of the application form and complete it by hand or typewriter, please download our PDF form. Once you have completed the form, please keep a copy for your records, post a copy to us along with any supporting documentation required and a covering letter.
For all application methods, it is vitally important that you read our Guidelines for Applicants. Please click the link on the left for our Guidelines.
Please note that the Trust prefers to communicate via e-mail to save on postage costs. We will acknowledge receipt of your application by e-mail and will inform you if your application was unsuccessful by e-mail within a day or two of the meeting date (grant offers will be sent via post). It is possible that such e-mails may end up going into your spam or junk e-mail folders so please do check these before contacting us.
