    Funded for greater amount - applied in 2023

    TT were hugely helpful in shaping our application - they encouraged us to think bigger and fill the gaps in the program we were applying for, rather than just ask for funds towards the existing project. In applying for the grant, think about where you would like to take your project, not just where it is now. And be reassured that the trust will discuss your application with you if anything seems awry, before a decision is made.

    Funded for amount requested - applied in 2023

    This is a very relational funder who is very interested in getting to know you as an organisation. They are very warm in their communication and good at responding. Their criteria and focus is changing so they are no longer funding Young Carers however they involved us in a creative project during our grant which will benefit our own resources as well as those of other people supporting Young Carers.

    The funder is very interested in us as an organisation and took the time to come out and meet with us.

    If you had one piece of advice to give to this funder (about grantmaking or anything else), what would it be?

    The project currently is 2 years but ideally a longer project time would be preferred for recruitment purposes and to give time to embed the project and its outcomes.
