How to apply

All charity requests must go through an application process if and when a grant has been made available.

The Council Members (Trustees) wish to discourage charities from wasting time and resources on applications that fall outside the rules on eligibility and or have not been invited to make an application.

If there are any grants available, all requests must follow the criteria below.
