Frequently asked questions
Your application for our quarterly meeting will be acknowledged. If your organisation or project does not meet our criteria we will write to you explaining the reasons why your application has been rejected. If your application is eligible we may contact you to request more information, to arrange a visit, or to ask for a funding update of your project. The Trust Secretary then appraises your application to ensure that the Trustees have the relevant information to make an informed decision on your request for funds. A summary of the project is then produced and will be presented to the Trustees at their next meeting.
