Projects throughout England now have the opportunity to apply for repeat and on-going activities under Awards for All in a pilot scheme running until the end of March 2013.
This pilot will open out the criteria to all projects where the applicant has an income of less than (or equal to) £30,000 according to their latest accounts.
Currently Awards for All does not fund on-going, regular or repeat activities, as the programme has focused on new project ideas. However, in these challenging times they are increasingly aware of the pressures smaller groups face with rising costs and cuts to funding, and want to respond to this by looking at alternative ways of funding projects that support those most in need.
Following a successful six month pilot in the West Midlands and Yorkshire and the Humber, they are now rolling out the pilot across England.
