Welcome to the Barrow Cadbury Trust application form
We hope you find this form straightforward to complete. If you have any problems with completing it, please contact us on 020 7632 9060 or use the help link in the bottom left hand corner of this page which will take you to our email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) Before completing this form, you should watch the short animation which tells you about what we try to achieve through our funding, and our programme pages to find out about the type of projects we wish to fund. You can also ring us for advice or use our brief enquiry form.
This form is divided into several different pages, each asking about a particular aspect of your organisation and project. If you want to see all the questions before you start, you can navigate through the pages using the page number links at the top of the form. You will see that we have given word limits on some questions. There is a word counter to the right hand side of those questions, to help you in drafting your application.
You can either type directly into the form or, if you prefer, you can cut and paste from another application such as Word. You can change the size of the text boxes in the form by dragging the bottom right hand corner. You are strongly advised to save your form regularly.
We suggest, as a minimum, that you save when you complete each page. To save your form, use the hyperlinks at the top and bottom of the form. You will be asked for a password and, once you've saved the form, you will be sent an email with a link to your form and a note of your password. We do not have access to your password, but if you forget what it is, you can reset it yourself or ask us to send you a new password.
Many of the fields in the form are compulsory. These are marked with a red asterisk. If you do not complete compulsory fields, you will not be able to submit your application to us.
On the last page of the form, we ask you to upload several documents. These include a project budget. If you wish, you can use the Barrow Cadbury Trust's project budget form, or you may prefer your own format. We will also need a copy of your constitution (or equivalent), and your most recent set of accounts. You may want to check the documents we need by looking at the last page of the form before you start.
We know fundraising is expensive and time consuming so want to minimise the work required. If you have already applied for the same project to another funder and are seeking match funding from us, you are welcome to send us your application to that funder. You can upload it as an additional document at the end of our form. You will also need to complete our form but if you feel the response is fully covered in a different document you supply, please write ‘see document attached’. If it is not covered, or not fully covered, please provide the information we ask for as we will need it to assess your application. For example we need to know how your project will address gender and race inequality, something which other funders may not ask.
Once you have completed the form and uploaded your documents, click on the "Submit" button. Your complete form will appear on the screen for you to review. Once you are happy with it, click the "Confirm" button. You will receive an email acknowledgement with a copy of your form once you have successfully submitted it.
It may take up to four months for us to assess your application. Please bear this in mind when planning your start date. We will be in touch during this time either to discuss your application with you or, if it is not eligible for funding, to explain why.
