Criteria For Grants

General Eligibility

Voluntary and community groups that can apply include:

  • Organisations that have been operating for 12 months or more
  • Constituted bodies, including registered charities, CICs, CIOs, unincorporated bodies
  • Consortia – please check further guidance

The project can be planned to begin from 1st April so that preparation can take place such as rehearsals etc. Public-facing activity should take place in June near the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Weekend. The project end date can be in August to include any evaluation and final payments.
