Accepting Applications Online – Improving Lives and Strengthening Communities – We are pleased to announce we are changing the way we accept applications for our Improving Lives and Strengthening Communities Programmes.

From 4 September 2019 all applications should be submitted using our online system. Paper applications completed using our PDF form will only be accepted until 5.00pm on Thursday 5 September. Applications that are postmarked on or after 4 September will be returned to the applicant to re-submit online.

The questions we are asking on our online form will not change significantly.  If you have started an application, or missed the deadline, you will be able to copy and paste most of your answers into our online version, so it should not significantly delay our assessment.

All our other programmes remain unaffected by this change.
