The application process is two-stage. The first stage is the completion of the online application form. These are reviewed by the Trustees who are specifically looking for the following:
- Does the application meet the criteria, i.e. is the organisation’s primary purpose to support unpaid carers or the rehabilitation of offenders?
- Will the grant make a difference?
- Has a development rather than a project grant been applied for?
- How will the funding be sustained long term?
All shortlisted applicants (usually about 6 - 8 organisations) go on to the second stage of the application process which involves a visit from the Triangle Trust. Applicants are invited to present their proposal with full business plan and monitoring and reporting ideas.
Trustees consider which proposals most closely meet the criteria of the Development Grant and which are most likely to achieve their expected outcomes and award grants accordingly.
All organisations are informed of the outcomes of their application at each stage and written feedback for unsuccessful applications is available on request.
Grants for all successful applications are awarded approximately 5 months after the initial closing date.
