Geolocation Guide

Last Updated: Aug 22, 2018 04:54PM BST
This screen allows you to select one or more areas from either or both of the Authorities & Wards and Places, Towns, Villages & Counties tabs. Use the Authorities & Wards list if the area you serve or operate in is a unitary authority such as a council, or council ward.

You may select as many areas as you like from both lists however please try to be as specific as possible.  e.g. if your project will benefit people living in Newbury please select 'Newbury' from the list of Places/Towns/Villages/Counties rather than 'West Berkshire' from the list of Authorities and Wards.  This helps funders, such as Town Councils, to identify local projects that they may wish to support.  Your project will also match with funders who support projects on a regional basis even if you select a ward, town or village.

  To select an area: 
  1.   Click on one of the tabs to highlight the list you wish to use 
  2. Start typing the name of the area you are looking for 
  3. When you see your required area, click it in the list and it will move to the right-hand pane 
  4. Repeat until you have selected all of the required areas 
  5. Click Ok to confirm your selections when all the areas you need are in the right-hand pane (Note - if you cannot see the 'Ok' button, this can be due to the zoom level on your computer.  Zoom out a little to reveal the button and confirm your selections).

  To remove an area: 
  1.   Find the area you wish to remove (using the vertical scroll bar if necessary) in the right-hand pane 
  2. Click on the area and it will be removed from the pane and will reappear in the left-hand pane 
  3. Click Ok to confirm your selections when all the areas you need are in the right-hand pane 

What if I can’t find the area I’m looking for?

It is possible that some small hamlets, villages, etc. are not in the list you are searching. In this case: 
  1. Click on the Authorities & Wards tab so that it is highlighted 
  2. Enter full postcode that is in the area you are searching for 
  3. The left-hand results pane will list the Ward that contains the entered postcode, plus the levels above it 
  4. Click on the displayed Ward (or higher level if appropriate) to select it and it will move to the right-hand pane 
  5. Click Ok to confirm your selections when all the areas you need are in the right-hand pane
