Programme longevity- a tiered strategy
Before you apply, please be aware there is now a tiered strategy in place to ensure we can achieve programme longevity and reach underrepresented areas again this year.
Each region or nations has a tier allocation, which may be subject to change, as the current funding year progresses.
We recommend checking our guidance document here for any changes to this tier allocation before making an application, or registering throughout the year.
Thank you for your support for this vital programme, to help us reach people most in need.
All applications must be made by a registered referrer.
