Applying for a Community Partnership grant

Applying for a Community Partnership grant is a 2-stage process:

  1. the submission of a concept note
  2. a full application (if an organisation is successful at the concept note stage)

All applications must be submitted online. Applications sent via email or post will not be accepted.

All applicants will need to :

  • register online to apply
  • complete an eligibility assessment
  • complete a concept note

Before starting your application please read the eligibility page.

Then visit our guidance page and read all of the guidance available on how to design your application. We particularly encourage you to read the lessons learnt from the previous UK Aid Direct funding round.

To support applicants through the application process we will update our Frequently Asked Questions regularly.

Please refer to the news page on our website for the latest information. We also encourage applicants to follow the UK Aid Direct social media channels, Twitter (opens in a new window) and LinkedIn (opens in a new window).

All applications are assessed/reviewed by an independent Technical Review Panel.
