How to apply

All applications must be made using our online application forms.  The forms can be accessed by visiting the pages describing our various grant programmes. 

We strongly advise applicants to download the application form questions and prepare their answers in advance. 

Please note, we operate with a small part-time staff team and therefore sometimes it is not easy to reach us on the telephone.  However, if you leave a message someone will call you back.   You can also communicate with us by email to grantadmin@cfct.org.uk

Unfortunately, the Trust receives many more applications for grants than it has funds to support.  For this reason, many excellent projects proposals do not receive grants.  We understand that this can be disappointing and we regret that we cannot enter into correspondence about why a funding application was unsuccessful.
