The Trustees usually meet on three occasions each year (March, July, and November). All applications for general grants are first vetted by the Secretary and/or two Trustees. Any applications rejected at this stage are listed in the agenda for the next trustees’ meeting with the reason for rejection.
Applications put forward for consideration at the trustees’ meeting are presented to the trustees with a summary report, recommendation and details of the applicant Charity’s financial position.
