Is your work commonly delivered elsewhere in the UK?
We turned down 29% - 629 applications - in the past year for this reason.
With limited funds it is very difficult for us to prioritise between the many excellent, but similar, organisations that apply to us, this is no reflection on the quality or importance of this work. Successful projects will be a strong match to one of our aims and are likely to produce learning which can be shared with/have implications for the wider sector.
Examples of what we don’t fund includes workshop delivery, advice centres, volunteer development, ESOL provision, standard work to improve employability skills, refuges, hostels, night shelters and standard services for homeless people, sports associations, playgroups, play schemes, out of school clubs, supplementary schools, playgroups, youth clubs and general capacity building/ professional development.
