Decide which grant to apply for 

We are currently welcoming applications for our Enable grant programme. These grants of up to £15,000 are awarded to charities which have identified clear development needs ways to address them. They offer a great opportunity to strengthen your charity to deliver more effectively. We are accepting Enable grant applications until 31 August.

Our long-term funding programme is currently closed for review as we streamline the application process, so that we can make it easier to apply for and quicker to get an outcome. The programme will reopen in November 2019 with a continuous, rolling application process. If you are interested in applying for long-term funding please sign up for updates.

If you have any questions about these programmes, get in touch with one of our team.
