Applications are welcomed from charities that have an annual turnover of less than £150,000 per annum. Larger or national charities will normally not be considered under this scheme.

Nor will the Scheme generally support charities that are able consistently to generate operational surpluses or which have built up considerable unrestricted reserves.
