At the March Board meeting Governors approved ten grants totalling £279,868. Six applications were declined. Half of those declined were because of concerns over governance issues (e.g. little evidence of an active set of directors/trustees or unclear business plan/funding strategy). The other half were declined for other reasons. We also give feedback to those who have been unsuccessful and in some cases offer free professional consultancy where this seems likely to help a good idea and organisation grow and prosper.
