The Weavers’ Company, a textile-related, charitable and sociable organisation, has announced that the next closing date for its grants programme is the 28th March 2016.
The Weavers’ Company Benevolent Fund supports projects working with disadvantaged young people (aged 5 to 30 years) to ensure that they are given every possible chance to meet their full potential and participate fully in society.
The Fund also aims to help young people at risk of criminal involvement to stay out of trouble and assist in the rehabilitation of offenders, particularly young offenders both in prison and after release.
Grants are usually no more than £15,000 per annum; to ensure grants of this size have an impact, large organisations will not be funded.
To be eligible for funding, local organisations (such as those working in a village, estate or small town) should normally have an income of less than £100,000. Those working across the UK should normally have an income of no more than £250,000.
