Can I apply if I am a national organisation or part of a national organisation?
The programme’s overarching aim is to fund projects local to One Stop stores that benefit their customers. We can only accept applications from each organisation once every 12 months.
If you have local branches or offices that have their own separate bank accounts, they will be able to apply every 12 months. If you operate as one single organisation, we suggest that you build your relationships with local organisations to encourage them to apply to the programme for projects that meet your objectives.
The types of organisations that can apply include:
- Voluntary/community organisations
- Registered charities
- Health bodies
- Parish/Town councils
- Social enterprises
- Community Interest Companies
- Community councils
- Local authorities and housing organisations
- Other not-for-profit organisations might also be eligible
