Apply to be part of Good in the Hood 2018

What to expect

Groups that take part in Good In The Hood say that while getting money is awesome, the thing that surprised them the most was how much more you get out of being in the programme.

What you’ll get:

  • A donation to help your group’s cause.
  • Opportunities to raise your group’s profile locally and nationally.
  • A toolkit with advice for contacting media, social media tips and tricks, an invitation to hang out on the forecourt, and more.
  • Ways to make local connections with like-minded people and potential supporters.
  • A foundation to build an ongoing relationship with people at your local Z station, including when you receive your donation in person.
  • To get the most out of the programme, your group will need to give it some creativity and time. The more you put into the programme the more you’ll get out of it.

A brief timeline:

The busiest time is now (when you apply) and during the month of May when customers come in to vote. That’s when you’ll be giving it all you’ve got to raise your profile and get those votes.

After voting ends and the votes have been tallied (usually early June) your group will receive your cheque in person at your local Z. At the end of the programme, we’d love to keep in touch and hope you do too!

What's next?

Good in the Hood is all about helping local groups doing good in our neighbourhoods. To see if your group is eligible to apply, just answer these three questions. If you’re eligible, you’ll be able to apply straight away.

Great, your group is eligible to apply!

Before you start your application, make sure you've got these things ready to go:

  • Your charity registration number (if your group is a registered charity)
  • An image and/or video showing the good your group does (optional)
  • Links to your group's website and/or social media profiles (optional)
  • Alternative contact details in case we can't get hold of you

You can’t save this form and come back to it. You need to complete it all in one go. It’ll take around 20 minutes  grab a cuppa!

Unfortunately, your group is not eligible to apply

It sounds like your group isn’t the right fit for one or more of the following reasons:

  • Groups need to be helping people or the environment in their local neighbourhood.
  • There needs to be a local need that the donation can be put towards.
  • Your contact person needs to be based in the area near the Z Station you’re applying for.

Thanks for enquiring about Good in the Hood this year. We wish you all the best for your group.
