Some people find the idea of a website storing information on their computer or mobile device a bit intrusive, particularly when this information is stored and used by a third party without them knowing. Although this is generally quite harmless you may not, for example, want to see advertising that has been targeted to your interests. If you prefer, it is possible to block some or all cookies, or even to delete cookies that have already been set; but you need to be aware that you might lose some functions of that website.

Application Process

The first step in the application process is to contact the National Park Ranger for your area and the External Funding Co-ordinator (see below details) to discuss your project. If it is felt that your project could be supported you will be invited to make a Small Grant Application for up to £2,000 or an Expression of Interest for up to £10,000.

The Expression of Interest allows us to consider your project concept without requiring detailed planning and costing. If it is felt that your project is eligible then you will be invited to make a Large Grant Application. The application will be considered at a scheduled Grant Panel Meeting where you will be invited to attend a short question and answer session. Application submission deadlines are a calendar month before each meeting and meeting dates can be found on the Grant Panel Meeting page.

Please ensure you have read through the Criteria and detailed Information Sheet before contacting your area Ranger or the External Funding Co-ordinator.

Application forms are not available for download as we encourage an initial conversation about your project – please contact the External Funding Co-ordinator on 01730 819219 or
