About the Scheme

The Choose Now, Change Lives campaign places Boost as the catalyst for change in the community by supporting community groups and organisations that make a real difference in local areas. Boost will support a range of community groups and organisations and help them make a difference in their local areas to truly facilitate change. With a focus on diversity, impact and legacy, Boost would like to support projects that benefit a diverse range of beneficiaries with high impact project ideas. They would like these projects to benefit communities for years to come, leaving a lasting legacy for the community to enjoy and benefit from.

Due to the high number of ideas expected in relation to the number of awards that can be made on this scheme, we have introduced an expression of interest stage which is done through Survey Monkey. This is a short questionnaire to allow us to get a feel for what you can do in your local community to demonstrate impact, diversity and legacy.

It also allows us to see where you are based, what your organisation does and gives you the opportunity to tell us how you would spend £1,000 - £10,000 if you were successful in securing funding through this scheme.

Boost would like to be the sole funder for any projects supported so your project must be discrete and not part of a wider scheme.

Please note, you will only hear back from us if you are invited to make a full application to the scheme. We will not contact you if you are unsuccessful at the expression of interest stage.

Please note that the following types of organisation cannot be funded through the scheme:

• Children’s or young people’s charities where the majority of beneficiaries would be under the age of 18
• Top tier local authorities
• Individuals
• Organisations where funding would be delivered overseas
• Charities with any party political or religious affiliation

Please note, due to the nature of the funding organisation, this scheme cannot support projects where the majority of beneficiaries are under the age of 18 or any vulnerable individual.
