This programme is centred on the idea of innovation – trying things that are new, progressive
and explore new ways of doing things. Innovation, by its very nature does not always succeed.
We are always open to discussing a change of focus throughout any project as learnings arise,
and we encourage open and positive dialogue on things that have not been as successful as
hoped so we can benefit from the project’s learning overall.
In the first instance, send an email with a brief outline of your idea and the amount you will
be requesting to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will review you request and get back to you within two weeks with an initial assessment.
If this is positive, we will invite you to complete a formal application online via a Google Form.
This should take between 20 & 30 minutes to complete.
Please contact us at the above email address if you have any questions.
