      Applications for funding for proposals must be made to your local county councillor, who will choose which applications to
       put forward to the county council for consideration, following appropriate consultation.
      Your county councillor may decide to recommend spending all of their Community Fund allocation in any one year on one
       project, or choose to support a number of proposals.
      Your county councillor may decide to recommend spending all or any proportion of their Community Fund allocation at any
       time before the final deadline. You, therefore, may want to enquire before you make any application about whether or not
       your local county councillor has allocated the money.

The Lankelly Chase Foundation

www.lankellychase.org.uk

      General Aims of the Foundation: "We support work that has a recognisable charitable purpose and which falls within the
       programme areas agreed by our Trustees. These are described in detail below. We will support service delivery but we also
       seek to help third sector agencies prove the impact of what they do and develop an influence with policy makers. We intend
       to concentrate upon smaller charities, many of whom will have only a local or regional remit. We may consider applications
       from large national charities but support for those will be rare and limited. We look for user involvement as well as the proper
       use and support of volunteers or mentors.

      You will have to provide evidence of sound management, a commitment to equal opportunities and child and vulnerable
       adult protection issues. We recognise that the black voluntary sector and minority ethnic groups have particular needs and
       we welcome applications from such organisations working within our programme areas.

      WHERE WE WORK
      Unless otherwise stated in the individual programme sections, we do not accept unsolicited applications from organisations
       or work based in London or Northern Ireland.
      We aim to treat fairly different geographical areas throughout the rest of the UK.

      OUR PROGRAMMES 2009 - 2014
      Arts• ...promoting excellence and exploring the power of the arts Breaking Cycles of Abuse• ...promoting safe and
       protective behaviours Custody and Community• ...promoting alternatives free and Quiet minds• ...seeking to restore
       troubled minds and lives local People, local Places• ...strengthening local communities and organisations
