Many people experience challenges at some point in their lives. We want to support activity that helps them overcome these difficulties and become more resilient.
Please note: from now until the end of 2019 we will be changing some of our internal systems to improve the experience of applying for and using our grants. While we do this we expect it may take us longer than usual to process applications. It could take up to 6 months for us to tell you our final decision for grants up to £150,000. For grants over £150,000 it could take us up to 6 months to tell you our decision about your stage one application.
We want to fund activity that means people:
- are better able to identify ways to take control over their lives and build resilience
- are able to shape the activities and services they use to better meet their needs
- have more access to support and opportunities to improve their lives.
For applications up to £150,000 you only need to fill in a single application form.
If you are applying for more than £150,000 there is a different form and a two stage process.
The success rate for applying for up to £150,000 is 46%. When applying for more than £150,000 the overall success rate is 42%. This is based on decisions made in the 6 months period up to 30 September 2018. Please read our blog for more information on success rates.
