The shortlisting process was designed to give Trustees a more wholesome and clearer picture of groups projects and applications. “We shortlist all Grassroots applications, whereas General applicants are only shortlisted if we require any additional points of clarity,” said Rachel Martin, Board of Trustees Chair for the EDT.
