Please note that we only respond if we have decided to award a grant and that it is generally not possible for us to discuss applications with callers.
The amount of time for a grant to be made, from the date of receiving the grant, is between 2 to 8 weeks. If you have not heard back within this timeframe, then unfortunately your application will have been unsuccessful.
- If you applied as an individual, we are unlikely to be able to accept your application. You should always apply via a local authority, another charitable organisation or an organisation such as the Citizens’ Advice Bureau.
- Please also read the ‘How to Apply‘ page to ensure that future applications are written in the way that would be most helpful to us.
