7. A Proposition to amend the criteria for funding ‘start up’ charities
The committee would like the members’ views on amending the criteria for funding for new charities. All new members can apply for funding once they have been members for six months. In order for the committee to be sure of the viability and sustainability of a new member, it is proposed to limit funding available for new members to allow them the opportunity to establish themselves and the need for their services.
It is therefore proposed
THAT in order to allow time for new members to establish themselves and prove their viability and sustainability, it is proposed that after six months of membership, a member can apply for a maximum grant of only £20,000 for the first full calendar year of membership.
