  • 3. Funding A Guide to Funding Introduction The purpose of this Guide is to provide information about the main grant making Trusts, National Lottery schemes and government funding that provide funding in relation to digital inclusion projects. The guide is intended to support community based ICT facilities, voluntary and charitable groups. the Note the guide includes funding bodies that are not ICT specific but where ICT could be an element and could play a part in your overall proposed project - by proposed Fund. exploiting technology. This is indicated by a * e.g. Volunteering in Wales Fund. An example would be using the Volunteering in Wales Fund to do a project around virtual For volunteering. For further examples of how to find money for technology see Marc Osten’s article at http://www.summitcollaborative.com/summit-published-articles/ http://www.summitcollaborative.com/summit-published- and http://www.ictknowledgebase.org.uk/winninggrants Imminent deadlines for funding are highlighted in yellow Preparation Before you begin to seek funding, make sure your project fits with the overall aims of your organisation and that you have the expertise and resources to carry it out. It may be helpful to plan project activity to run concurrently with complementary activity. Be clear about what you want the money for – equipment, training, staff time – and who will benefit. A proportion of overhead costs, e.g. staff time committed to the project, may be included in your application. Research potential funders carefully so that you apply to the organisations that best match your needs. A high percentage of funding requests fail on grounds of eligibility or because of poor preparation. Seeking project funding can be a time consuming undertaking, however it may be the only option if core funding is has been reduced or withdrawn. In addition, some external funders will contribute to core costs. As a first step, go through this Funding Guide and draw up a list of possible funders for your project. Then undertake some more detailed research on the organisations you have selected, looking at, for example: specific criteria, deadlines, average size of grant awarded, match funding etc. This should narrow down your list to the most suitable organisations to approach. Applying to a variety of sources can increase your chances of success. Contact these bodies and request an application form and guidelines. You may be able to download these documents from the funding organisation’s website. As far as possible, website addresses are provided for all organisations in this Guide. Read the funder’s guidance notes carefully, as they will tell you what information you will have to provide in your application. You might also find it useful to get a copy of the funder’s annual report, which will give you a feel for their funding policy and strategy. From all of this information, you should now be able to choose the most appropriate trust or fund to whom to make application. 3
  • 4. Clarify your objectives Your applications should support the strategic development of your strategic centre/organisation Consider the type of activity your centre/organisation wants to support. Take the opportunity to revisit organisational objectives. For example, does your organisation seek to engage disadvantaged groups, build community capacity, provide skills training etc? Ensure you have a clear and up to date understanding of relevant national, regional and local strategies. Your project may be eligible for statutory funding strands if your activity is in line with key strategies. Follow the key project development steps in developing the project or activity for which you will be seeking funding. Establish evidence of need and set clear aims and objectives. Objectives should be SMART i.e. specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time based. Consider how you will monitor and evaluate the project activity in order to track progress and report back to the project funders. Good monitoring data will also be crucial for project management purposes. Application Preparation Contact the funders prior to preparing and submitting an application. Most funding bodies will be happy to discuss your project and give advice on your application. Establishing the eligibility of your project for support is the key do not waste key, time submitting applications where eligibility is in doubt. Your application should be clear and concise and written in a user friendly style. Avoid jargon and provide definitions of any specialized terminology. The summary of all the key points of your project proposal should fit on one A4 page (roughly 500 words). Make sure you state: why you need the funding, the goals and objectives of the project, who are the beneficiaries, the project budget, project staffing, the resources available, and your organisation's expertise to carry out the project. Address the funders’ priorities Refer to the relevant guidance and ensure that priorities. you provide all the information required by the funders to assess your project. Get someone who is not directly involved in the project to read over your application as a final ‘quality check’ quality check’.

  • 21. Deadlines None - can be submitted anytime Comments All project applications must have volunteer input and be able to clearly demonstrate how they meet with 1 or more of the 4 key Environment Wales goals http://www.environment- wales.org/ Match Funding Requirement Environment Wales can fund up to 75% of project costs. This means that at least 25% of costs must be met from other sources. Environment Wales recognises the importance of volunteer input to projects and records this as if it were a cash value (volunteer contribution is currently costed at £6.50 / hour). If there is sufficient volunteer time on a proposed project, smaller groups may use this contribution to make up the 25% match funding requirement. Larger groups will be expected to meet at least some of this requirement from other sources, which can include other funders, own resources or income-generation. Match funding can also be provided in-kind. Limit on funding from Welsh Assembly Government Sources Environment Wales is funded by the Welsh Assembly Government, which is keen to encourage projects to secure support from a range of other sources. Groups need to demonstrate therefore that the total amount of funding for their project coming from Welsh Assembly Government sources does not exceed 75% of the total costs. Other organisations providing funds that originate from the Welsh Assembly Government include the Countryside Council for Wales, Wales Tourist Board, and some WCVA grants including the quot;Volunteering in Walesquot; fund.

  • 30. more than one of these definitions. Deadlines Aim to start the 2009-10 round for bidders in the autumn of this year and will make further announcements nearer the time Comments As Grant in Aid awards are essentially a contribution towards your running costs, we expect your organisation will already be carrying out activities similar to those provided by HMRC e.g. promoting, publicising or educating customers about HMRC products. As such in 2009-10 HMRC seeks bids from organisations to carry out activity that does not require support from HMRC. We are unable to provide resource to check the detail in leaflets, check scripts or be involved in any level of support for the projects, beyond the monitoring and evaluating. Only in very exceptional circumstances will we agree to provide resource for a project. If you feel you will need HMRC support it is vital that your Pre-bid application has stated explicitly what HMRC resource is entailed, whether you have obtained a commitment from HMRC for that resource and you have clearly identified and costed the resource requirement. This is so that HMRC can clearly assess the additional cost required to complete the project against value for money. Contact details - http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/vcs/funding0708.htm 30
  • 31. Fund/Trust The Community Fund - helping the community tackle gun, gang and knife crime * Description One of the key strands in our programme of work is empowering communities to work with local agencies to take action to prevent gun, knife crime and gang culture and offering support to parents to challenge their children’s behaviour. We recognise the key role played by communities in tackling these issues as we know that enforcement is not the only solution. Prevention and early intervention are crucial and this is where local Community groups can play such a vital role. This new funding stream of £4.5 million is being made available over the next two/three years to community groups working with young people. The Community Fund builds on the success of the Connected Fund, but is designed to be more sustainable and fund organisations with a key focus on intensified work with young people at risk of becoming violent offenders, or those already involved in gangs and criminal activity, over two/three years. Grant funding available £4.5 million What it funds The aim of the fund is to support smaller voluntary and community organisations who can demonstrate successful approaches to tackling the issues of guns, gangs or knives among young people and those particularly at risk of involvement in serious violence. They particularly fund organisations in South Wales. They will prioritise projects which are engaging young people involved (or at risk of being involved) in gun/knife crime and gang activity in the following areas: Mentoring, outreach or education work with young people involved in, or at risk of becoming involved in gun/knife crime or gang activity. For example those at risk may include: siblings of gang members, ex-offenders and associates of gang members who have been identified via youth offending teams, risk 31

  • 51. Fund/Trust Ernest Cook Trust * Description The Trust’s grants policy is influenced by Ernest Cook’s two great passions, namely art and country estates. Grants, which must always be for clearly educational purposes, aim principally to focus upon the needs of children and young people. Only UK registered charities or not-for- profit organisations may apply; priority will be given to those which represent small regional or local organisations. Grant funding available Grants are mostly in the range £4,000 - £10,000, with only a few larger awards for projects closely connected with the Trust’s land holdings and educational interests. Grants at six small grants meetings(up to £4,000) average £1,500; these modest, easy-to-access grants seem to bring great benefit to primary schools and smaller voluntary groups.

All applications are expected to link in with either the National Curriculum or recognised qualifications.

Application Criteria Only UK registered charities or not-for- profit organisations may apply There is no application form. Applicants are asked to send a covering letter addressed to the Grants Administrator as well as describing their educational project clearly on no more than two sheets of A4, specifying how any grant 51

  • 74. Fund/Trust Foundation* The Waterloo Foundation* Description The funding priorities for the Wales Fund are: WORKING WALES • CARING WALES • BEST OF WALES • WORKING WALES. The Foundation is keen to support and assist in the development of an enterprise culture in Wales and so would welcome applications from organisations and projects that will facilitate people becoming employed, whether working for others or for themselves. The Foundation will also look favourably on applications that address “barriers to work” and will be equally receptive to both “tried and tested” methods and those projects which are more innovative Caring Wales. CARING WALES It is estimated that 1 in 10 people in Wales is providing unpaid care for a family member, a total of some 300,000 people. Of these, 7,000 are predicted to be children aged 5 – 15 (source National Office of Statistics). The Foundation believes that these adults and children, who have to live and work in this way, deserve our help. To this end, they would like to receive applications from organisations and projects providing: Advocacy programmes for Carers. • Training and Support for Carers. • Respite Care • THE BEST OF WALES 74
  • 75. Although the Foundation wishes to prioritise the Working Wales and Caring Wales programmes, they recognise that there are organisations and charities in Wales that have stood the test of time and are continuing to do good work. However, it may well be that they are struggling with coming to the end of public sector funding or across the board cuts, and are finding they have very few “commercial” opportunities to replace their established funding. The Foundation would like to support the Best in Wales and, as such, projects will need to demonstrate: 1. KNOWLEDGE – the project team has a clear and demonstrable understanding of the need 2. EXPERIENCE has shaped the response to this need 3. EXPERTISE has been developed and is retained within the organisation 4. EXCEPTIONAL RESULTS have been achieved. In broad terms, the project should be able to demonstrate and have testament to, its exceptional nature. It is likely that grants will be made to organisations and projects that: have been running for more than • 5 years have received substantial funding • in the past are looking to restructure in order • to establish the organisation on a more sustainable funding footing. Grant funding available They make grants for all types of projects; start-up, initial stages and valuable 75
  • 76. ongoing funding. This can include running costs and overheads as well as posts; particularly under the World Development and Projects in Wales.

  • 77. Fund/Trust Yapp Charitable Trust Description The Yapp Charitable Trust makes small grants, for running costs and salaries, to small registered charities in England and Wales to help sustain their existing work. The Trustees decided to concentrate on sustaining existing work, after we asked our applicants what type of funding they found most difficult to raise. Most people said the biggest problem is finding money to keep work going once it can no longer be described as new, even though it is effective and is still needed. As a small grant-maker they cannot do everything, so they concentrate on sustaining work that has proved its worth. They make a grant when other funding is coming to an end. Grant funding available They give grants for running costs and salaries for up to three years. Grants are normally for a maximum of £3,000 per year. Most of the grants are for more than one year because they give priority to ongoing needs What it funds They make grants to small registered charities to sustain their existing work with: elderly people children and young people aged 5 - 25 people with disabilities or mental health problems people trying to overcome life- limiting problems of a social, rather than medical, origin - such as addiction, relationship difficulties, abuse, a history of offending They also make grants to sustain small registered charities' existing work in the 77
