We are now in the final stages of informing organisations invited to the full application stage of the November 2016 general funding round, if they have successfully been awarded a grant.
This follows a thorough review of all applications, full integrity due diligence, and financial assessments.
Individual feedback will be provided to all unsuccessful organisations in due course. Meanwhile, we have compiled a lessons learnt document to profile general feedback on the applications received during this funding round. This comprehensive overview is available to download here.
Thinking about applying for the new Small Charities Challenge Fund (SCCF) grant, or in the process of completing your application? Although this funding round will remain open, all SCCF applications will be reviewed on a 6-monthly basis. The closing date for the first review of proposals is Saturday 30 September 2017 at 17:00 UK time, so should you wish to be considered in this review, please submit your application prior to the deadline.
The UK Aid Direct helpdesk, firstname.lastname@example.org will be open as usual, Monday to Friday 09:00 – 17:00 UK time. Please note that no support will be available on Saturday 30 September and we strongly advise that you aim to resolve any queries and submit all applications by Friday 29 September at the latest.
We encourage all applicants to check ELIGIBILITY before applying for the fund and to read the SCCF GUIDANCE DOCUMENTS before submitting applications.
Following an extremely positive response from those applicants invited to the full application stage of the current general funding round, we will now be announcing the results over the summer.
Successful organisations will then undergo full integrity due diligence and financial assessments prior to the grant contracting process.
