Applications will be considered from local LGBT+ and HIV organisations, and from other organisations offering local LGBT+ and HIV specific projects.
There is no maximum that can be applied for, nor a limit on the number of applications per group or organisation.
We are unlikely to fund social programmes this year.
Priority will be given to projects run by volunteers, and where no paid administrative staff are directly involved.
Groups with turnover of less than £30,000 may apply for core funding ( our definition? The costs incurred in running the group which are not direct costs of delivering a project. Examples are office and admin expenses, stationery, phone line, rent, insurance). Grants for core funding will be capped at £1,700 this year.
Mandatory attendance at meetings of Working To Connect ( The LGBT Small Groups’ Network) will no longer be made a condition for being awarded core funding.
Closing date for receipt of application form is 5pm on Friday 31st August 2018
Application received after this date will not be considered
All applicants will be asked to attend a meeting with members of the Independent Grants Panel to discuss their application, in the first week of September.
As this isn’t a competition to find who can fill in a form the best, we will be happy to help with the process. Any queries should be made by using the contact facility on this website.
