Information we need
The questions we ask help us make responsible decisions about how we use CCLT money and the amount of grant we might give you. This means we need you to complete all sections of the application form as fully as you can.
It is important that you provide full details of income and benefits for yourself and anyone living with you, and all your weekly bills and spending.
By also telling us about your time in care, and including the details of two people who are in a position to confirm your circumstances, it will help The Trustees consider your application more quickly.
CCLT has three Trustees.
- Any two Trustees can authorise grants up to £2000
- All three Trustees must authorise awards over £2000
Trustees can consider awards of up to £3000 specifically in relation to Higher education fees.
How long will it take?
We will tell you when we receive your application and aim to give a decision as quickly as possible, preferably within 4 weeks, but it can take up to 12 weeks, depending on the purpose of the grant, your individual circumstances and the number of applications being processed and considered at the time.
