Putting your project forward is simple...


Apply online

Firstly, you’ll need to register on the Foundation website. You’ll need your OneFamily policy number so make sure you have it to hand. Next, tell us about your project and choose the level of funding and category for your project. Remember, part of your application will form the basis of your project page so the more detail you provide the better!

Please note the application will not be available until the next round of awards open.


Spread the word

Once we’ve approved your project, make sure your page has all of the correct information displayed, an image and links to your website and social media. Raise awareness of your nominated project with your friends, families and local community.


Bring in the votes

Once the projects have been shortlisted and the voting phase opened, it’s time to gain the public’s support! It's up to you and your community to bring in the votes via the OneFamily Foundation website. Share your story online and promote it to raise awareness of your project!


Make a difference

As soon as we’ve counted and verified the votes, we’ll announce the winners in each of the categories and contact them directly to share the good news.

Good luck!

Choose the right category for your project

Health, Disability & Social Care

We all need a little help from time to time. Projects that sit within this category may include working with children or young people with learning difficulties, disabled persons or respite care.


Funding within education is often challenging. The category is intended to support projects that bring structured benefits to those in full/part-time education. This could be the development of amenities such as play areas, learning spaces or library facilities.

This category is split into two: Education (up to 500 students) and Education (more than 500 students)

Sports & Social Groups

These groups are a great way to enjoy life and share experiences. This category is intended to support groups to grow and develop what they offer, while bringing benefits to their local communities such as developing community meeting areas, sporting facilities or equipment.

Youth & Affiliated Organisations

Supporting youth and other groups brings social benefits within local communities. This category is aimed at helping organisations develop facilities that benefit local communities. This could include artistic projects or integrating young people into all walks of life.

Developing Skills - new for Autumn 2016

Our newest category is about enabling our customers, or an individual you want to support, to acquire the skills that benefit their community. This could be training to become a sports coach, training to teach those with mental or physical disabilities or becoming a Youth Group leader.
