With the introduction of our new online Community Investment Portal, applying for and managing your grants has never been easier.

By using our online portal, we aim to improve the experience of those applying to our community funds.

The Portal makes grant applications easy whilst also allowing applicants to view key information on their  applications and any grant awards - all in one place. It also enables us to better manage grant applications, improve communication between applicants and awardees and will help demonstrate the socio-economic value our community funding brings.

The Portal has been carefully designed to be user friendly, including for applicants with little or no experience in using online application systems.

All applications to our community funds and scholarship funds are now made through the Portal.

We've produced a series of short videos, available to watch below, providing an overview of the Portal, how to set up your user account, how to make applications and how to manage your applications and grants.
