If you think you have a project that Nominet Trust would be interested in funding, then you can apply using our online application process. We have a two-stage application process. Stage 1 allows you to describe the key features of your project and what you hope to achieve via a relatively short and straightforward online form.
We aim to review all Stage 1 forms within two weeks' of receipt. The projects we feel align closely with our aims and objectives will be shortlisted and invited to complete the Stage 2 form - also online.
Big White Wall’s members create bricks for the wall – hundreds of images every month which show what’s on their mind that day. Some have swirling grey clouds, some sunshine on a beach, some pictures of a favourite pet. Some are expressions of deep pain and fear, others celebrations of a small (or a big) step forward. One recent brick simply listed all the mental health diagnoses the member had been given; they filled the whole image.
At the Nominet Trust/Founders Forum for Good event on Big Data last week, Sir Tim Berners-Lee's closing line was 'to pick your data battles' to move the data agenda forward (the agenda of openness, data informed practices etc).

I suppose that as it was at a Nominet Trust event that Sir Tim set out that point is an example of that. But in addition to that event we have been picking our data battles for the past 20 months.
