They seem to apply a bog standard approach to all of their grant programmes - without acknowledging the different grants will require different approaches, different monitoring requirements and different methods of engagement. Be aware that because their programmes are oversubscribed, it might take a while for them to get back to you, so be patient.

Think in the long term - outcomes that will outlive the grant and which are as sustainable as possible. Decision to fund can take longer than anticipated so plan accordingly.
