What do our committees do?

Our committees make decisions on grant requests between £100,000 and £1million.

They also recommend the funding priorities and provide a crucial local perspective for applications of £1m and above which are decided by the Board.

Our committees meet every three months to take decisions on grants in their local areas.

Requests for grants of up to £100,000 are discussed at monthly advisory meetings and a decision made by the head of the local HLF office.
