Applications are welcome from any charitable organisations. If you know of a project which requires financial assistance, please make an application; the Grant Application Form can be found here. We are only able to consider applications from organisations that are registered as a charity in the UK. The organisation must be established for “charitable purposes” and be recognised by HMRC as an exempt charity. DSB Trustees next meet on 29th October 2021. In order to be considered any application must be received by 24th September 2021. Any applications received after this date will be put forward to the next meeting.
Please send any applications to Dan Edwards marked ‘DSBCT’.
