You can always call us if you have specific questions about the application process. We also run regular funding surgeries to help and guide applicants to apply for the fund, and to maximise the use of the fund if there are other appropriate funders to go to.
We like to hear about your projects, and prefer this to receiving cold applications to the fund. Please also contact us if you have access issues and need support. We’re here to help!
