Apply for funding

We are open for applications!

To apply for a grant of up to £1,000, please follow these steps:

  1. Read through the criteria and previously funded groups to decide if your group is in line with what Bristol Redistro is looking to fund. 
  2. Find out if someone in your group is up for coming to the funding day, which will be on Saturday 3rd June. All shortlisted groups are invited to the funding day to be part of deciding how the funds are shared out, and will receive a grant of up to £1,000. We understand that group events are not for everyone, and if there’s noone in your group who would feel comfortable attending then you don’t need to attend and will still receive the grant. We’d really encourage you to come if you can though as it’s a great opportunity for groups to learn from one another, make new connections and feel inspired by all the great work going on around the city.
  3. We aim to tell you in around 2 weeks after the deadline if your application has been short-listed and to invite you to the funding day if so. 
  4. Fill in the short application form and send it to us by the deadline of midnight Monday 1st May to You can apply using an online form, or download an application and email directly to us.
  5. As this is a new project, we are asking for groups that participate to offer us feedback on the application process and suggestions for how to improve future funding rounds. 

Our decision-making process involves previously funded groups short-listing applications and the final decisions being made by the short-listed applicants. We will therefore be sharing your applications with these groups. Please let us know if you have any questions about this. 

Our aim is to continue fundraising up until the funding day. We’d like to let people know which groups have been short-listed and feel this might encourage more people to donate. If you are short-listed we will check with you if its ok to share this publicly.
