This document is also available in pdf format (16k)
Carefully read the SRPF Information Note and application guidance before completing the application form.
Provide a clear and concise description of the project, its aims and outcomes.
Show a clear understanding of how your project fits into the wider picture locally.
Demonstrate involvement of the local community, agencies and partnerships in the project, explaining why it is a priority for the local community.
Provide sufficient and clear financial information.
Make it clear where match funding will come from and what parts of the project/partnership will be funded from the SRPF.
Include practical proposals for evaluation and continuing funding.
Assume that everyone will know how good your project is. Remember that yours is one of many applications we receive.
Include irrelevant or obscure information.
Continually refer us to attachments throughout the application form, rather than including the information in the form itself.
Refer to attachments, but forget to include them.
Assume that saying the community has been consulted is enough. We need to know how they were consulted and a summary of the outcome.
Forget to attach evidence of secured or conditional match funding.
Don't include items that would be funded regardless of the project as 'in-kind' match funding.
Forget to complete all sections of the application form.
