Please note that the next meeting of the Sub Committee (which considers the majority of the Trust’s applications for funding) will be held on 26th March 2018.  If you would like to your application to be considered at this meeting, we need to have received your application paperwork in the office by 15th March 2018. If you are applying for £5,000 or more, it is possible that your application will be considered at the full Trustees’ Meeting in March or deferred until the next meeting in June depending on when we receive it and whether it is likely that the Trustees would wish to make a larger grant.  We will let you know by e-mail.  Any grant payments approved at the March Sub Committee on the 26th will be paid in early April.

All applicants will be informed of the outcome of the meeting within a few days of the meeting.  Unsuccessful applicants will receive an e-mail and successful applicants will receive a letter containing a cheque or an e-mail confirming that a grant will be paid via BACS transfer.  Please note that e-mails are usually sent out before the BACS transfers are made so that you know to expect a bank payment from the Trust.  E-mails from the Trust may end up in your Junk/Spam/Clutter folders so please check before contacting us.

Please note that, subject to Trustee approval, we will be paying ALL grants via BACS after the next meeting (expected to be early/mid May) and cheques will only be issued in very exceptional circumstances.
