We will check your application to ensure that it is eligible and that you have provided all the information we have requested.
We will make our decision based on the information you provide in your application, any further information that we request and, where relevant, data and information from the Charity Commission and Companies House websites relating to your constitution and audited accounts from the past two years.
We may consult VisitEngland for their views on how well you have met the brief in relation to visitor economy growth.
Applications will be assessed using a five-point word scoring:
- Not met
- Met – strong
- Met – outstanding
On the basis of these ratings we will recommend whether an application is suitable for funding. Applications that do not achieve at least 'met' under all three criteria will not be recommended for funding.
