We are not a disadvantaged group can we still apply? Yes. There are three other key scheme criteria that applicants need to demonstrate they meet (see above). However, we encourage all applicants to outline how they have consulted with disadvantaged / under-represented members of their local community and how they will be involved in the project going forward, as we want the projects to be as inclusive as possible. Involving disadvantaged groups will strengthen your application, giving you a higher chance of success.
