Organizations that are not registered charities will need to provide a copy of their constitution showing charitable or social purpose. Organizations must be able to provide a full year of accounts.
As their focus is on funding work that actively involves children and young people, all applicants must have a Safeguarding / Child Protection policy that is regularly reviewed, and be able to demonstrate that adequate processes are in place to ensure the safeguarding of children and young people. If your project will be delivered remotely, your safeguarding policy must reference online safety.
