How long will it take to consider our application?
Batches of appeals are considered on a rolling basis, thus there are no deadlines for submission. Only if the Trustees are not unanimous will an application be taken to the next available meeting for further discussion. We will write to you with the result of your application as soon as possible, although it is likely to be several weeks before you hear from us. The Trustees meet 3 – 4 times each year. 

When can we re-apply?
You can re-apply after a year. We do not accept repeat applications within 12 months, whether or not they have been successful.
