Southern Trust Funding Policies
Section 109 of the Gambling Act 2003 requires a corporate society that operates mainly to distribute net proceeds of class 4 gambling to the community to, at least annually, review the criteria, methods, systems and policies it uses for consideration of applications for the distribution of net proceeds.
A review of the Southern Trust's funding policy was completed in July 2011. Some minor changes were made to the policy, mostly regarding the electronic application process that has been introduced.
The Southern Trust funding policy document (provided for download below) provides a would be applicant organisation an overview all of the relevant information when it comes to both the duties and responsibilities of both the Trust and themselves.
Applicants are encouraged to download and carefully review the terms and conditions of funding, covering such issues as the preparation of funding applications (with attendant documentation), required auditing of funds after they have been awarded and other useful guidelines affecting the funding process and general criteria for funding.
