Apply to be part of Good in the Hood 2019

What to expect

Being part of Good in the Hood is about so much more than money. Although the money is awesome and a great incentive for many community groups to take part, we know from previous groups that other benefits that come along with taking part in the programme are far more valuable. Which is why we want you to know all about them before you apply!

What you’ll get:

  • A donation to help your group’s cause.
  • Opportunities to make local connections with like-minded do-gooders and potential supporters
  • Access to a ‘group only’ online toolkit to help with raising your profile locally and nationally
  • Create ongoing relationships with the people at your local Z station
  • To get the most from being part of the programme, it’ll require some time, creativity and enthusiasm from your group

A brief timeline:

The busiest time is now (as you apply) and September when customers come in to vote. During voting month, you’ll be encouraged to make the most of your time on the forecourt to raise awareness for your group and boost those all-important votes!

Once the votes are tallied, you’ll be invited to receive your donation in person. This provides another great networking opportunity to make those vital local connections that last long beyond voting month.

And when it’s all over, 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)
  • 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.
