Changes of circumstances

Contact your IA about changes of circumstances in relation to the following:

  • If a service does not spend the full amount of funding on the support project, they must speak to their IA. If their IA agrees in writing, the service may spend the remaining funds on inclusion related activities to overcome the same or similar inclusion barriers outlined in the initial application.
  • Any additional activity undertaken in line with the agreed change must be declared when completing the online declaration of funding.
