We know that raising funds is a major focus for charities and that it can take you away from the real work. So we’d like to make the process of applying to us for funding as easy as possible, and prevent you from wasting time on making an application we cannot consider.
Please read our criteria carefully because we will only consider applications that match them. We have limited funds so unfortunately, if your organisation or project doesn’t meet these criteria, we will not be able to help you. If you think your project might be of interest to us, please read the following steps:
1. Does your organisation work in one of the two areas we accept funding applications for:
2. Does your organisation have UK representation? We only work with partners who have some staff based in the UK because we like to meet our partners on a regular basis to get to know more about them and their work.
3. Is your organisation a registered charity in the UK? Your organisation must be registered with a national regulatory body. If in doubt, you can check here:
- In Scotland: the Office of the Scottish Charity Register
- In England & Wales: the Charity Commission
- In Northern Ireland: the Charity Commission for Northern Ireland
If you are applying for a Food Security grant, please read our detailed criteria.
If you are applying for a Local Food Poverty grant, we will be adding detailed criteria soon.
2. We think sustainable solutions are really important. This means that you should have long-term goals which make a lasting difference to the people you work with beyond the end of the project.
Unfortunately we can’t support one-off events and conferences or sponsorship and fundraising activities.
We know that raising funds is a major focus for charities and that it can take you away from the real work. So we’d like to make the process of applying to us for funding as easy as possible which is why in the beginning we only want a very brief description of your project. We'll get in touch to find out more if we need to.
Whichever way you choose to get in touch, we need the following information:
- Your name
- Your email address
- Your phone number
- Your organisation's name
- Your organisation’s website (if you have one)
- Your organisation’s registered charity number
- Are you applying for a Food Security or Local Food Poverty grant?
- A summary of your project in no more than 200 words including how you set up the project, your long term goal and what you would use the money for.
