District Advance Fund Grant Applications

The District Grants Committee meets prior to the District Leadership Team, to whom, after careful consideration, they recommend suitable applications for grants. 

To assist with administration and to ensure that the application receives the consideration by Committee members that it deserves, it is requested that, if at all possible, the application should be with the District Grants Officer 4 weeks prior to the meeting of the Committee. 

Applications can be submitted electronically (preferred) or by post to the District Grants Officers (contact details in application pack)


During the period of the grant, an annual interim report is requested, and a final report is required on completion of the grant period / project.
