How projects are assessed

Our Fund is overseen by a panel made up of some of our wonderful colleagues. The panel review the strongest applications from each funding round and have the final decision where the money goes.

The criteria we use to assess your application

Community need

Is there a significant need for this project in the community and evidence of good engagement with the community during planning?


Is the project planned well with a detailed budget breakdown? Are there thorough plans to measure the benefits of the project and how it's improved community wellbeing?


How will the project be sustained and bring benefit beyond the investment period? How will you ensure the project will still be running in a few years’ time and won’t just rely on future investment? 

Value for money

Is the amount requested good value compared to the number of beneficiaries and overall impact of the project? Does the project seem like good value for money in comparison to similar projects?



If your application passes our internal review and is a good fit for our criteria, your application will then be taken to the Community Fund Panel who review the applications twice a year.

You can find more details on assessment in our application guidance document.
