Apply for funding under £10,000
Before you start
- Have a look at our website for information about funding under £10,000
- If you need more than £10,000, have a look at our website for information about funding over £10,000
What information you need to apply
1. The details of two different people from your organisation
One person should be someone we can talk to if we have any questions about your project. The other should be a senior member of your organisation, who’ll be legally responsible for the funding. Both need to live in the UK.
The two people can’t:
- be related by blood
- be married to each other
- be in a civil partnership with each other
- be in a long-term relationship with each other
- use the same email address in your application form
What details you’ll need:
- names, email addresses, telephone numbers
- home addresses
- dates of birth
2. Details about your organisation
- The legal name of your organisation
- Your organisation’s address
- What type of organisation it is (for example, a registered charity or not-for-profit company)
3. Your organisation’s accounts
We want to know the date your accounts end each year.
And how much income you have.
If you don’t have yearly accounts (because your organisation is less than 15 months old).
That’s okay. We can still look at your application.
4. Send us your bank statement
What we need
One bank statement dated within the last three months. So we can check the account you want us to pay the grant into.
We'll not be able to assess your application if you do not have a bank account and bank statement that meet our requirements below and you’ll need to reapply once you have these set up. If you’re not sure contact us
- A bank account that meets our needs in our Financial Controls and Financial Governance Guidance
- A bank statement that meets our needs.
Our bank statement needs
It should show:
- the bank logo
- your organisation's legal name
- the address the statements are sent to
- your bank's name
- the account number and sort code
- date the statement was issued.
5. We ask for information about what sort of project you’d like to do
And how your project will help and involve your community.
