What do organisations need to have to get a grant?

Organisations requesting grants should have governance and management structures and processes in place to support the size and complexity of the services or projects for which they are seeking funding. An organisation must have:

  • two people with the right to sign all of the organisation’s bank accounts
  • a current cashbook or electronic version that is regularly updated
  • a record for tracking grants from different funding sources
  • a person responsible for keeping the organisation’s financial records
  • up-to-date tax records (if applicable)
  • regular financial reporting to every full meeting of the governing body
  • submitted any reports due for previously approved grants
  • an up-to-date organisation profile in our online system
  • an official bank document showing your organisation’s bank account details (this could be a bank statement, printed deposit slip or bank letter confirming the account name and number)
