Indeed.  But on past experience I think the chances of a favourable response 
are low unless there is some sort of formal structure, rather than just a 
group of mates.  For instance, AFAW says you need a constitution.

Yes - the only thing is that they seem to be aimed at local projects, whereas 
we would be nationwide.  Illtud's NOF reference is also good, although we may 
need to be creative on getting ourselves fitted into one of their categories 
- Education is the closest.

The time involved in getting a bid together is not trivial, but having a 
reasonably clear idea of what sort of body and what aims we have in mind 
would be a good start.
