Charities need to demonstrate they are in good financial standing by showing a healthy level of reserves and recent accounts. If your charity is unable to demonstrate this, it will not be considered eligible at this stage. but you are welcome to re-apply at a later date once this has been rectified.

Sections 2-4 will ask you to self-declare information about the levels of insurance your charity has, as well as the processes and procedures you have in place. Answers given in this section will not affect your eligibility to apply for funding, however if you submit a full application, this information may be given more weighting and you may be asked to supply evidence of the information you have provided.
