We have a slightly different approach for organisations wishing to apply for a major grant as these are considered by the Trustees at one of eight meetings per year. We therefore ask you to begin by sending us an initial letter in the post to outline your project, with information on the objectives, overall cost, current shortfall and timeframes. We will then be able to give you bespoke advice in relation to your plans. This approach also ensures our meetings are carefully managed so there is sufficient time for consideration for every proposal and so our expenditure is balanced through the year to ensure fairness. For more information on our commitment to everyone who applies please see the Weston Charter.
