What kinds of things can’t be funded?
Posted on Wed 18 June 2008
The focus of the programme is on medium and longer term revenue projects, rather than short-term one-off grants. Grants should not be worth less than £5,000 nor should they be greater than £250,000. Capital projects will only be considered in exceptional circumstances.
Specifically the following cannot be funded:
- The promotion of religious beliefs
- Statutory responsibilities or the replacement of statutory funding
- Individuals, unless they are a consultant delivering services for the benefit of a group within the FST neighbourhood
- Repayments of loans or debts, retrospective funding, deficit funding, endowment or reclaimable VAT
- Projects or activities that fall outside the FST neighbourhood, except where the primary beneficiaries are from the FST neighbourhood or if there is a demonstrable benefit to the FST neighbourhood
- Projects that do not meet the aims identified in the local Priorities Document, the aims of the programme or any other activities not consistent with the objectives stated in the Fair Share Trust Deed.
