Awards for All regularly receives more applications than it can fund. If you have had a grant from us within the last two years and are thinking about re-applying, you should be aware your application will be a lower priority for us and you are less likely to be funded.
If you have an idea for a larger project, you may wish to consider applying to our People and Communities programme, which offers funding from £30,000 for projects lasting between two and five years. If you are interested in People and Communities please call our advice line on 028 9055 1455 for a chat.
Please note: from Friday 13 May 2016 we will only accept the Awards for All application form that can be downloaded from this website following completion of the eligibility checklist. We will no longer accept older versions of the Awards for All application form.
We aim to process all Awards for All applications and return a decision within six to eight weeks, although this may take longer during busier periods.
