Which charities can apply?

The grants listed below are only available to charities that are registered with the Charity Commission.

The charity and/or project must also be located in England and/or Wales.

Charities which deliver community support or research can apply for either a Large Grant (over £5,000) or a Small Grant (under £5,000).

For Large Grants (over £5,000) charities must first complete an Enquiry Form for review before a formal Large Grant Application Form is sent to selected applicants by email.

  • We encourage charities that have an annual income under £500,000 to apply for a Small Grant of £5,000 or less. We will, however, consider requests for grants of over £5,000 if the charity can demonstrate it will be used for an innovative project or service.
  • Charities with an income of over £500,000 can apply for a Large Grant or Small Grant.

Please note that if you are a current grant holder, have received a grant from our organisation which ended less than two years ago or have been declined for a grant in the last twelve months, you are not able to apply at this time.

Further details about eligibility can be found in our Charity Grants Guidelines.

Large Grant

Over £5,000 can be awarded to charities for a specific purpose only. Reasons to apply for a Large Grant can include funding salary costs, specific project costs and refurbishment costs. New build or large scale capital development projects cannot be considered. Funding may be granted for up to three years, where there is evidence of an on-going need for funding.

To start an application for a Large Grant, an Enquiry Form must be submitted via our online Charity Grant Form. The team will then review your submission at a fortnightly Grants Panel Meeting and get back to you via email to confirm if you have been selected to make a formal application for a Large Grant.

Please note that only one enquiry form can be submitted by a charity, for a single project. If the enquiry application is unsuccessful, subsequent enquiry forms may then be completed.

Small Grant

Between £500 and £5,000 can be awarded to charities for core expenditure such as general running or overhead costs of the charity.

You can apply for a Small Grant by completing our online Charity Grant Form.
