There will be no open grants round in October 2019

As we prepare our new five-year strategy for 2020 onwards, we have decided not to accept applications for new grants in October 2019. However, we will consider applications for continuation funding from existing grantees. Please contact us if you would like to discuss continuation funding.

We will launch our new strategy in the Autumn, with applications open towards the end of the year for decision in summer 2020.
