To apply to the Large grant, please complete the online application below.
If you tick YES to any of the following questions below, your application will not be processed, as you are ineligible to receive a grant.
Your answers to these questions will help us understand your organisation and how you work within the context of your community.
We are interested in finding out whether you have some of the key characteristics and qualities we are looking for as this helps us to identify the groups we think we are best placed to help.
Don’t worry about making your application ‘professional’ or glossy – we are looking for openness and a clear sense of the work you do and how and why you do it.
Remember that when we use the word community we don’t just mean your local area: your community can also be a ‘community of interest’ – a group of people with a particular shared need, experience or identity.
Make sure that your application tells us how many people your organization works with (or the number of people you are hoping to reach if you are looking for funding for a new project or are a new organization). This helps us to get an idea of the scale and scope of your work.
You don’t need to provide a detailed description or full costings of the work you are seeking funding for at this stage. We will ask you for more information if your application goes through to the second stage.
Ultimately we want to understand the vision and energy that inspire your work and how you think the LDF funding could help develop it.
Please submit your introductory letter by uploading it as a PDF below. Applications without an introductory letter cannot be considered.
Please also submit copies of your organization’s most recent Report and Accounts with all large grant applications, where available. The latest annual finance report must accompany the application or it cannot be considered. Please bear in mind that we do not return any documents. However, if you request the return of specific items, we will do our best to comply.
Please upload any further information which you feel is relevant to your application but which is not covered by the previous questions in this application. Supporting documents (e.g. budget submissions, project outlines, quotations for equipment etc) must be submitted with your application if appropriate.
All documents must be in PDF format. This helps to preserve the integrity of your application and makes it easier for us to see your information the way you would like us to.
All uploads must not exceed 10 MB combined. Anything larger than this may lead to technical issues, at your end as well as ours!
