FUNDING: Bernard Sunley Foundation Small Grants – no deadlines

Organisations can apply at any time for small grants that raise the quality of life for people in England and Wales.

Charities, specialist schools, CIOs, and other not-for-profit organisations including scout and guide groups, and housing associations can apply for up to £5,000. The grants are considered on a monthly basis and normally awarded to projects costing up to £100,000.

Medium grants of between £5,000 and £20,000 and large grants of £20,000 and above are also available.

The Foundation aims to provide greater opportunities for the young, elderly, disabled, and disadvantaged by supporting capital projects in the areas of community, education, health and social welfare.

The types of projects that could be supported include improvements to village halls, supporting children and adults with special educational and learning needs, improvements to hospices and treatment clinics, and supporting day centres for the elderly.

Applications can be made at any time.

Decisions are given within three months for small grants and within six months for others.
