Discussing your idea
The Trust is keen to hear from potential applicants at any time to discuss your potential project. This should help you to identify and address any obvious issues at an early stage and prior to the submission of a full application for assistance.
To help you through the process, we have introduced a Concept Note system which will allow you to set out your project ideas in outline. The Concept Note enquiry form is available here and once completed, should be submitted to the Director. The concept note can be used for any of the categories of funding we provide support for through our grant aid.
Depending on the scale and nature of your project we will either attempt to respond with comments on submitted concept notes within 5-10 working days or alternatively it will be submitted to the next Projects and Research Committee meeting, after which feedback will be given. Dates of PRC meeting dates can be found here.
Once you have decided to take an application forward and have submitted a full application to the Director, no further amendments can be made or informal comments sought unless clarifications are requested by the Trust's Projects and Research Committee.
