How to Apply

The Police STAR fund is not currently open for applications. We expect the 25/26 call to run along similar timelines to the previous call, with EOIs opening in Autumn 2024. This webpage will be updated with fixed timeframes once they have been agreed.

The Police STAR Fund operates a 2-stage application process. Applicants will first be asked to submit a short (~750 word) EOI, with those successful being invited to submit a more detailed full stage application.

Information on the previous call can be found below for your awareness – while we do not expect timelines and processes to significantly differ, the Police STAR Fund may choose to make alterations to guidance for future calls, which will be shared on this page prior to any call opening.
