Although the application form is available to download below, you should familiarise yourself with the criteria of the scheme first and then, if appropriate, complete an initial enquiry form to email@example.com
Initial Enquiry Form (Word, 154kB) For the next stage of the process, you'll need to submit a completed application form, along with financial projections to support your application.
For grants under £250,000 you'll need to complete Annex 1. For grants over £250,000 you'll need to complete Annex 2, which is more detailed to reflect the higher amount of grant being sought. Advice on how to complete these annexes is given within the documents. You should also provide the last two sets of audited accounts where appropriate.

You can submit applications by email but the turnaround 'clock' will only start when we've received a signed hard copy of the application form.
We aim to keep the cost and complexity of applications to a minimum, so you shouldn't need the services of an external consultant to put your application together but you can use one if you wish.
