Martin Wilkinson explains what the panel of the Step Change Fund looks for in funding applications. Each fund has its own criteria but Martin’s comments about resilience are worth paying close attention to, as they’re common to most funding applications.

Step Change was set up in 2014 as a semi-autonomous fund sitting within Oxfordshire Community Foundation. The fund has granted over £1.1 million to over 30 Oxfordshire charities, many of which have also had a Charity Mentor. You can find out more about the Step Change Fund here.
