Schools small grants initiative up to £7,500 to enhance and enrich opportunities available to children in our area.

We know that trips, visits, access to extra-curricular activities and events are a great boost and motivator for children. So we are inviting you to apply to us for a Small Grant of up to £7,500 to widen the experiences available to your pupils.
You can apply for funding for one or more events or activities, but each must be thoroughly researched and costed prior to you applying. Grants must be spent within 6 months of the start date you advise in your application.
 
We are likely to fund;
• Tutors for Music or Drama lessons
• Coach visits to museums
• Theatre trips
• Outward bound trips
• Holiday activities
• Trips to activity centres
• STEM activity sessions
• Specialist coaches to deliver sports sessions
 
We are unlikely to fund
• Books and equipment
• Building works, repairs or works to meet health & safety obligations
 
Projects must show good value for money, be well planned, with researched costs and have strong outcomes, with good proposals for assessing whether they have been achieved.
 
We want to fund well planned and managed projects and understand that that will require staff time to manage. We will, therefore, fund the cost of up to 10 hours project planning, management, monitoring and reporting at a cost of up to £30 an hour.
 
Deadline dates for applications are on our website and please give us a call on 0208 581 1676 if you have any questions, or would like to discuss your proposal.

Large grants above £7500

We anticipate that we will be able to continue to make one year main grant awards through to December 2019.
 
There is a two stage process for main grant applications for sums over £7,500. Most funding requests will require a Stage 1 application. 
Applications are considered by the Main Grants Sub Committee and the Board of Trustees. 
 
If your project has a reasonable chance of being funded, based on your Stage 1 submission, you will be invited to submit a Stage 2 application for a main grant which will call for much more detail about the project including detailed costings. Often at Stage 2 we specify additional information that we would need in order to be able to consider a grant. 
 
We strongly advise you to ring us to discuss your Stage 1 application before you submit it. We are always pleased to answer your queries before you complete the form and to give advice on the application procedure. Giving us a call to discuss an application could save you a lot of time and effort and help improve your chances of making a successful application.
 
When completing the forms please make sure you have read our guidelines for funding on this website and also any notes accompanying the form as these will certainly save you time. Please also feel free to ring the Hillingdon Community Trust office with any queries.
Please note when you are completing your application you will be able to return to it if you need to log out at any point but once you submit the form you cannot go back into the application. 
 
Once submitted to us a copy of your application will be emailed to you by return. 
 
 
 
When you have completed sections A-E, please read section F which sets out the information that we will need in the stage one application. Please upload a description of your project in either Microsoft Word or PDF Format with a maximum 2 sides of A4 in at least 11pt font.
