The Commissioner's Fund for 2018/19 is now open for applications. The application process has been improved and the applications are now online. There are now four funding categories that can be applied for and the word limit and detail required now adequately reflect the amount requested. The information required in an application increases with the amount requested.
Smaller applications: Category 1: £1 - £1,000 & Category 2: £1,000 - £5,000 - Deadline: 30 September 2017
Bigger applications: Category 3: £5,000 - £20,000 Category 4: More than £20,000 - Deadline: 31 October 2017
Application process stages:
·Applications are read and scored based on their suitability by the commissioning team to ensure they meet the criteria.
·Additional questions may be asked throughout the process if clarification is needed.
·Applications will be sent to Priority Leads and internal and external experts for their recommendation.
·All applications will be reviewed by the Commissioner's Fund panel
·Applications which are below £20,000 per year will then be taken to the Commissioner for his final decision. Successful applicants will be notified from March 2018 onwards.
·If an application exceeds £20,000 and reaches this stage, applicants will be invited to give a 10 minute clarification presentation to our internal panel. Whilst a final decision on applications will be made on the day, applicants will not be notified of the outcome until the end of March 2018.
