You can read more about the work we do on our About Us page, and also two important focus areas (but by no means the only ones!) of technology innovation, club development and volunteering.

We review grant applications 4 times a year so there is always an opportunity to request funds when you need them. Of course we need information on the projects, and how you will use the money so we ask you to complete a grant application form (see below).  Deadlines for submission are:

Applicants are encouraged to submit their applications as soon as they are ready and not wait for the deadline, as the Trustees could be looking at the applications and raising any points of clarification.

Trustees and Ambassadors can give advice to prospective applicants about their projects but a decision can only be made when a formal grant application has been submitted (see the Getting in Touch page to find your nearest Ambassador). A coordinating Trustee is then appointed who will seek the views of Trustees and liaise with the grant applicant if there are any queries. That Trustee then submits a summary of the application, further information made available and any initial Trustees’ views, together with a recommendation, for discussion at the forthcoming Board meeting.

Not sure how to fill out the form, or want more information on what sorts of projects we support? Please contact email hidden; JavaScript is required who will put you in touch with someone who can help.
