The project fills in an application form and sends it to firstname.lastname@example.org
Independent volunteers from the community benefits steering group review the application for general suitability (e.g. whether project operates within the Vale, timescales etc).
Scores from the initial appraisal are calculated and short-listed applications are sent to the contractors.
At this stage the 21st Century Schools team will let the project know whether it has been shortlisted.
The contractors discuss the application at the monthly community benefits meeting and determine whether it is feasible to support the project.
The 21st Century Schools team will let the project know whether it has been accepted (please note the project could be accepted in full, in part or with minor adjustments).
If the project is accepted the 21st Century Schools team will connect the relevant project contacts with the lead contractor to discuss further details and next steps.
Any projects not accepted are provided with feedback from the 21st Century Schools team and are welcome to reapply.
