We are NOT running any open programmes for Covid-19 emergency funding. All applications submitted must be in line with our general funding policy so please read our guidelines fully before pursuing an application



We have recently moved to an online application process. Please read our guidelines fully before considering an application as we only fund charities that meet our eligibility criteria. We welcome pre-application enquiries.

We ask applicants to provide details about the charity, its activities, beneficiaries, recent finances, projected spend and secured income. To help you plan your responses, please refer to this summary for a list of the questions we ask.

To access our online portal for the first time you will need to register. If you are already registered with the Yapp Hub, log in with your username and password to either start a new application or resume completing an existing one.
