How To Apply


The Emergency Fund is not open yet, so please don’t try to apply. We are currently seeking support and donations towards the strands and once we have raised £1000, we’ll open the fund for applications so get donating!
How to apply
To apply groups must complete, sign and submit the Emergency Fund application form by email to along with copies of the organisation’s past 6 months’ bank statements and last accounts. Applications will be assessed by the Cinema For All Funding Committee on a rolling basis within 7-10 working days of the date the application is submitted. Applications need to demonstrate the viability of the proposal and the intended impact of an award on the effective running of the organisation. Applications are subject to available funding.

Within an agreed timeframe groups receiving a grant will be required to show evidence of the impact the grant has made and provide reassurance that the group will not be reliant on on-going financial support by submitting an action plan for how they intend to stabilise finances over the next six months. Successful applicants will not be able to reapply for 12 months following receipt of an Emergency Fund grant. However, priority may be given to groups applying to this fund for the first time.

The names of Pay It Forward grant recipients will be published on an annual basis along with the names of groups supported through the Pay It Forward: All Our Communities project.
