Small Grants Programme: £500 - £20,000

We have recently updated the funding criteria for the Small Grants Programme. 

Due to increasing and unprecedented demand for funding that we are unfortunately unable to meet we have taken the step of restricting the funding themes that we accept applications under. From the 2014 Q3 funding round onwards we will only be accepting applications for projects that meet the following funding theme:

• Advancement of citizenship or community development

Please refer to the guidance notes or the Small Grants page for further information.

The Small Grants Programme is now open for applications and will close at 5pm on Friday 22nd August. We are accepting applications for projects that advance community development in the following areas:

  • Scotland
  • Wales
  • East Midlands
  • West Midlands

Please see the Small Grants page for the online application form.

If you have applied in the previous funding round we will be in touch with a final decision on your application in the first few weeks of July. Your confirmation letter will arrive by e-mail. 

If you wish to discuss a future application or have any other questions about applying for funding you can contact the Trust Helpdesk:
