We will acknowledge your application by email once we have received it.
You may be invited to a Zoom with a couple of our team to chat about your application in more detail.
We aim to respond to all applications to say whether or not they have been successful within 8 weeks of the published closing date.
You will hear back from us whether your application is successful or not, however unfortunately we are not always able to provide applicants details of why they were not successful.
We review every application received and filter out those that do not meet our criteria.
However, due to the number of applications received we are not able to award everyone that goes through to the second round where it will be reviewed by at least three members of the team.
We are not able to offer individual feedback on unsuccessful applications, other than we like to keep an even balance in the areas we fund and most likely there were stronger applications who we have chosen to support because we felt they will have a greater impact on the community and environment.
Unsuccessful applicants may apply again.
