When applying for funding, most applicants will be required to submit their most recent set of accounts. If your accounts are less than 18 months old, you may provide a budget for the upcoming year. Additionally, you will need to provide your governing document (such as mems and arts or a constitution), as well as safeguarding, equality and diversity policies. If you do not have these documents or are unsure about their format, please contact the Community Investment Fund Coordinator for guidance. If you are awarded funds, you will need to confirm your bank details by sharing a bank statement from the last 3 months.

SAVS also offers support to groups, especially those who are just starting out, to help them get their paperwork in order. For further information, see – https://www.savs-southend.org
